Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fisher offers a thoughtful, sardonic meditation on the price of fame, cost-of-living adjustments included." –J.D. Biersdorfer, The New York Times Book Review 

“Characteristically frank and unflinching, funny and true … The Princess Diarist is about a woman’s relationship with desire—her own, and of others’ for her—writ large, as large as Star Wars.” –Julianne Escobedo Shepherd, Jezebel.com 

"In her funny and frequently touching new memoir The Princess Diarist, the iconic Star Wars actress and author reveals the diaries she kept as a 19-year-old starring in the blockbuster sci-fi film.... It’s an eye-opener for fans, but it also shows a gifted writer even at a young age. There was a lot going on between Princess Leia’s hair buns." 
-Brian Truitt, USA Today

“There’s tremendous insight into the volatile heart of a young woman, seen through the eyes of her wiser, older self still seeking her place in the universe.” – Anthony Breznican, Entertainment Weekly
 
“Are you a woman who’s ever fallen for a man who might fit this description? ‘With him love was easier done than said/instead of taking you to heart he would take you to bed/and you take what he has to offer lying down/you’re getting more involved while he’s still getting around.’ Yes? Read on … [The Princess Diarist] is a radical truth bomb.” – Julia Felsenthal, VOGUE.com

"An unflinching, sometimes painful, sometimes hilarious look inside the mind of a 19-year-old actress in the throes of a Hollywood locationship." –Meredith Woerner, Los Angeles Times

"An unexpectedly emotional read." –The Verge
 
"Fisher [is] a force to be reckoned with, both on the page and in real life." –Heather Havrilevsky, Bookforum

"A frank, self-deprecating memoir...outspoken, honest commentary of what it's like to be Princess Leia on and off the screen." – Kirkus


"The Princess Diarist...is about the making of Star Wars in 1976, but it's definitely not for the kids — a wry, witty look back through the diaries she kept at the time, its main event is her steamy affair with co-star Harrison Ford."
 –Colette Bancroft, Tampa Bay Times
