In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher reflects on what it was like growing up in one of Hollywood's most dysfunctional families, as the child of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. She refers to her family as "Hollywood Inbreeding". This is Fisher's fourth book, but her first memoir. In Wishful Drinking she humorously covers her neurotic childhood, coming of age on the Star Wars set, her on-again off-again relationship with Paul Simon and her personal experience with addictions and mental illness. This memoir ultimately is about her survival and recovery from addiction and bipolar disorder. But, along the way her self depreciating sense of humor and wit will have you laughing out loud.
