Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hilarious."--"Marie Claire"

"[Fisher] never lets herself veer into woe-is-me-ism. With charming shamelessness, she conducts a brisk and witty tour of her life, delivering up her tragedies as a nonstop laugh riot."--"Elle"

"Fisher is a girl who knows how to tell a story . . . she can make us laugh, she can make us cringe, but she can also teach a great deal about the power of forgiveness."--"People" (4-star review)

"Hollywood's new poor little rich girl . . . continues her tour down the rabbit hole of Crazy Town, sparking us through brightly lit secret corridors while twisting self-deprecation into an art form. Fisher's wordplay is wicked, relentless, and playful as a bouncy house full of polar bear cubs."--"San Francisco Chronicle"

"Fisher's memoir "Shockaholic", the follow-up to her successful autobiography and one-woman show, "Wishful Drinking", is similarly witty, ramshackle, and outrageous."--"Washington Post

"

"There's no such thing as TMI in Carrie Fisher's world, and that's why we're hooked on her new memoir, "Shockaholic"."--"Ladies' Home Journal"

"Amazing . . . pretty fascinating stuff."--Rosie O'Donnell ("Windy City Times" interview)

["Shockaholic"] stands out beautifully from what has become the madding memoir crowd."--"Buffalo News

"

"Carrie Fisher goes from pathos to punch line with a flick of her wit." --"Louisville Courier-Journal"

"Carrie Fisher is able to deliver a sage, self-deprecating tour of addiction, bipolar disorder, and her experiences with ECT (Electro-Convulsive Therapy) in a way that leaves readers feeling like she's your funny, cynical, down-to-earth BFF." --"BUST"

"Fisher is, at her core, a very good writer who's able to keep us entertained. Fisher deserves praise for being up front about the [electroshock] therapy...If she wants to keep talking, we'll keep listening."--"Los Angeles Times"

"Fisher's word choices and comedic rhythm echo such literary comic masters as S.J. Perelman and Woody Allen . . . she proves the ripe adage that comedy really is tragedy plus time. Grade: A-" --"Cleveland Plain Dealer"
