'Smart and funny . . . the pages crackle with one-liners' Guardian 'Who do I think I would've been if I hadn't been Princess Leia? Am I Princess Leia, or is she me?' This is Carrie 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. 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. In these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, Fisher 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. Readers love The Princess Diarist: 'By the time you get through the book, if you didn't love her before, you will now.' 'Honest, witty, and a beautiful insight into her life behind the camera.' 'A "must have" for any Star Wars fan.'
