Story

What Is the Story of Wishful Drinking?
Long before Star Wars made her into a household name (let alone such household items as a Pez dispenser and a bottle of shampoo), Carrie Fisher had seen the other side of stardom. Her father, crooner Eddie Fisher, famously left her mother, Singin' in the Rain sweetheart Debbie Reynolds, for the Angelina Jolie of their time, Elizabeth Taylor... and that was before Ms. Fisher was even out of diapers. A trilogy of iconic films, a pair of high-profile relationships, drug addiction, mental illness and more Hollywood madness followed—and Fisher reveals it all onstage in this intimate stage memoir.

Critics' Reviews

""Carrie Fisher makes you feel like you’ve arrived for a slumber party to swap confidences. And she has a copious array of hilarious one-liners, but you need to hear them from her. You're going to like it. A lot.”"

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

""A hilariously perceptive journey through a world of celebrity and self-destruction, chock-full of funny, fascinating tales.""

Review by Michael Kuchwara from Associated Press
