The Princess Diarist

The Princess Diarist is Carrie Fishers intimate, hilarious and revealing recollection of what happened behind the scenes on one of the most famous film sets of all time, the first Star Wars movie. 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 preservedplaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naivet, 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 (sort-of) regular teenager. With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fishers intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all timeand 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....

    I have a confession to make… I’m not a Star Wars fan. Ive seen them (the original three at least) and they were enjoyable but overall just not my thing. I am however a Carrie Fisher fan and I am so happy I picked this one up.

    Those like me who have no emotional connection to Star Wars shouldn’t let that prevent them from reading this. This isn’t some romanticized reminiscence of the filming one of the most iconic movies of all time. What we have here is a brutally honest look at an insecure, 19 y

    Last year before her passing, a number of Goodreads friends of mine posted that they were reading a new memoir in diary format written by Carrie Fisher. Upon finding out that Fisher had already authored four books and one memoir, I had my curiosity piqued. Having watched the original Star Wars trilogy so many times that I have the credits and most lines memorized, I was giddy to get my hands on Fisher's insightful, first hand look at the what went on behind the scenes of the most iconic movie in ...more

    Hearing ANYTHING about Star Wars from Carrie was so wonderful. The overall writing is a bit hard to get through at times, but her voice really came through. And it was all sorts of emotional to hear her make so many references to "after her death."

    So I really did enjoy hearing her thoughts, but didn't expect so much of the focus to be around her affair with Harrison. She basically recounts everything that happened from her perspective and includes journal entries from while they were filming the

    “If anyone reads this when I have passed to the big bad beyond I shall be posthumously embarrassed. I shall spend my entire afterlife blushing.”
    Didn't we all feel this way about our diaries as hyper-dramatic, brooding adolescents, at the mercy of our raging hormones and our short-circuiting ever expanding neural pathways and vivid imaginations? Sure we did, those of us who bothered to "write it all out and down" (which I think tends to be more of a female act of expression, than male -- but I c ...more

    I remember when I found out how young Carrie Fisher was when she was cast as Princess Leia (barely nineteen!) I wondered what it would be like to have your first real job be Princess Leia.

    Well, kids, wonder no more! Here are her memories, her musings, and even her crappy teenage poetry about getting cast, meeting the cast, getting her buns on, and how being Princess Leia changed her life. The writing is wry and much more coy than I thought it would be, but it was a very interesting glimpse into

    Even though I'm not a Star Wars fan, I am a big fan of Carrie Fisher.

    I loved how outspoken and honest she was about her life and mental health. After listening to The Princess Diarist I now love how honest she was about her affair with Harrison Ford. I also greatly enjoyed her talking about some of her fan interactions; hilarious.

    It's nice to hear someone from Hollywood talking about how insecure she was about her hair, her weight, etc... You would never know it from watching Princess Leia an

    Y'all, I can't even talk about this right now.

    Princess Leia was the only princess I looked up to and wished to be growing up. Princess Leia was tough, smart, beautiful, with a fantastic hairstyle and a Jedi for a brother. Also, she had the best looking scoundrel in space, Han Solo. What little girl didn't want to be her? So when this came out, and I heard what it was about, I knew I had to read it.

    Carrie Fisher is a sarcastic, funny and honest writer, not hesitating to write about herself in a not so pretty light. I admire that and so I wi
