Summary:

This memoir from the bestselling author of Postcards from the Edge and Wishful Drinking gives you an intimate, gossip-filled look at what it’s like to be the daughter of Hollywood royalty.

Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that locked Wishful Drinking on the New York Times bestseller list for months, Shockaholic is the juicy account of Carrie Fisher’s life. Covering a broad range of topics—from never-before-heard tales of Hollywood gossip to outrageous moments of celebrity desperation; from alcoholism to illegal drug use; from the familial relationships of Hollywood royalty to scandalous run-ins with noteworthy politicians; from shock therapy to talk therapy—Carrie Fisher gives an intimate portrait of herself, and she’s one of the most indelible and powerful forces in culture at large today. Just as she has said of playing Princess Leia—“It isn’t all sweetness and light sabers”—Fisher takes readers on a no-holds-barred narrative adventure, both laugh-out-loud funny and poignant.

Genres:

  • Anonymous

    Her brutal honesty made her amusingly unique. Carrie Fisher is the true meaning of one in a million. Hilarious.

  • Kristy Snaith

    I enjoy Carrie Fisher's sarcasm and honesty in dealing with her depression. I enjoyed Wishful Drinking more, as it was a bit funnier, but I still recommend highly.

  • jordan smith

    Written with humor and intelligence, but also vulnerability - Carrie Fisher's second memoir is a great read and personal look into a pop culture icon's life and all that it entails. Star Wars fans will love her tidbits about her iconic character - Princesd Leia, as well as great nuggets from the films. Old film lovers will enjoy her stories about her mother, Oscar nominated star Debbie Reynolds, and anyone who has ever suffered from mental illness will surely have a huge takeaway from this with the frank and detailed discussions about a topic many of us pretend to ignore. I adrored this book and I adore Ms. Fisher.
