Synopsis

The Princess Diarist is Carrie Fisher's intimate, hilarious and revealing recollection of what happened behind the scenes on one of the most famous film sets of all time, the first Star Wars movie. When Carrie Fisher recently discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved-plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naivete, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Today, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a (sort-of) regular teenager. With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fisher's intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all time-and what developed behind the scenes. And today, as she reprises her most iconic role for the latest Star Wars trilogy, Fisher also ponders the joys and insanity of celebrity, and the absurdity of a life spawned by Hollywood royalty, only to be surpassed by her own outer-space royalty. Laugh-out-loud hilarious and endlessly quotable, The Princess Diarist brims with the candour and introspection of a diary while offering shrewd insight into the type of stardom that few will ever experience.

Customer Reviews

The Princess Diarist is the latest, and sadly last, of Carrie Fisher's autobiographies. Upon finding a box of diaries written during the filming of Star Wars: A New Hope in her house, Carrie decides to share them with the world. We are treated to excerpts from these, including some brutal entries about loneliness and self-doubt, alongside love/hate poetry for her co-star Harrison Ford, whom she was having an affair with. Carrie's writing is refreshingly frank, as ever, and she remains one of the most important advocates for mental health. A must-read for Star Wars fans, for those who want to understand bipolar better, and for anyone who has ever been in love.
