About the author (1987)

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 novels, "Wishful Drinking, Surrender the Pink", "Delusions of Grandma", "The Best Awful", and "Postcards from the Edge", which was made into a hit film starring Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep. 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.
