When Carrie Fisher discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved - plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Now her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a teenager with an all-consuming crush on her co-star, Harrison Ford.
With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fisher s intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all time and what developed behind the scenes. Fisher also ponders the joys and insanity of celebrity, and the absurdity of a life spawned by Hollywood royalty, only to be surpassed by her own outer-space royalty. Laugh-out-loud hilarious and endlessly quotable, The Princess Diarist brims with the candour and introspection of a diary while offering shrewd insight into the type of stardom that few will ever experience.

Review:

"Smart and funny...the pages crackle with one-liners" (Guardian)

"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." (USA Today)

"An unflinching, sometimes painful, sometimes hilarious look inside the mind of a 19-year-old ... It’s invasive, juicy, sad, nostalgic and gripping all at once. It’s as if you’ve knocked the lock off of your cooler older sister’s journal and discovered she’s been sleeping with the hottest boy in school this whole time." (LA Times)

"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)

"[The Princess Diarist] is a radical truth bomb" (Julia Felsenthal VOGUE.com)

"Carrie Fisher was so real it was dangerous.... My God, girls, we owe her a lot." (Sharon Horgan)

"She didn't need The Force. She was a force of nature, of loyalty and of friendship." (Steven Spielberg)
