The apparently tipsy drinker on the cover of Carrie Fisher's memoir sports Princess Leia's tightly knotted "cinnamon bun" hairstyle. That shouldn't surprise us: Fisher has acted in dozens of films and television shows, but her visage seems inextricably connected with her role as Leia in the Star Wars epic.

This memoir possesses the raw power and sharp edge of her fiction, especially her debut novel, Postcards from the Edge.

I Picked Up This Book Because: Celebrity bios are my thing now. The Story: Carrie is an interesting lady. In this book she is very open about her life, her family and her struggles. The Random Thoughts: The Score Card: 3.5 Stars

Nie jestem ani wierną fanką, ani zaciekłą przeciwniczką. Właściwie nic o niej nie wiedziałam (i pewnie da...
