About the Author
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.
