From Princess Leia herself: another brilliantly hilarious self-examination of her unlikely life and times.

A thoroughly original and intimate memoir by the bestselling author of Postcards from the Edge and Wishful Drinking.

When Carrie Fisher recently 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. Today, 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 costar, 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. And today, as she reprises her most iconic role for the latest Star Wars trilogy, 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 candor and introspection of a diary while offering shrewd insight into the type of stardom that few will ever experience.

  • A fascinating insight into a young Carrie Fischer

    by on

    I adored Carrie & the Star Wars films & was devastated when she died so unexpectedly. This memoir was only published in 2016, so a fairly recent insight into what she was thinking now & then. Some terrific photos from behind the scenes on the set of Star Wars. And some poignantly anguished entries straight from the diary of the teenage girl who was to become the legendary "Princess Leia". A must read for all fans.
