POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE

Carrie Fisher is "one of our most painfully hilarious correspondents from the edge of sanity," said Vanity Fair about the author of this classic novel of men, drugs and alcohol, heartbreak and recovery...Hollywood-style. As timely today as when it was first published, Postcards from the Edge is "a wickedly shrewd black-humor riff on the horrors of rehab and the hollows of Hollywood life" (People) -- a witty, vivid, and all-too-revealing look at the dangers and delights of our addictions.

About the author (2008)

Carrie Fisher, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, became an icon when she starred as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy. Her star-studded career includes roles in numerous films such as The Blues Brothers and When Harry Met Sally. She is the author of five bestselling books: Wishful Drinking—which lead to a hit Broadway production of the same name—Surrender the Pink, Delusions of Grandma, The Best Awful, and Postcards from the Edge, the basis for the popular film starring Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep. In 2009, she was nominated for a Grammy award in Best Spoken Word Performance for the audio edition of Wishful Drinking. Fisher's experience with addiction and mental illness—and her willingness to speak honestly about them—have made her a sought-after speaker and respected advocate.
