1st Simon & Schuster hardcover ed.
Infused with Carrie Fisher's trademark incisive wit and on the heels of Wishful Drinking's instant New York Times bestselling success, Shockaholic takes listeners on another rollicking ride into her crazy life. There is no shortage of people flocking to hear what Princess Leia has to say. Her previous work, Wishful Drinking , was an instant New York Times bestseller and Carrie was featured everywhere on broadcast media and rave reviews from coast to coast, including People (4 stars; one of their top 10 books of the year), Entertainment Weekly , The New York Times , and scores of others. Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that placed Wishful Drinking on the New York Times bestseller list for months, Shockaholic is the juicy account of Carrie Fisher's life, focusing more on the Star Wars years and dishing about the various Hollywood relationships she's formed since she was chosen to play Princess Leia at only nineteen years old. Fisher delves into the gritty details that made the movie--and herself--such a phenomenal success, admitting, "It isn't all sweetness and light sabers."

display_description The electro-convulsive shock therapy she's been regularly undergoing is threatening to wipe out (what's left of) Fisher's memory. This might even be a brand-new addiction for her. But before she can truly commit herself to it in the long term, she decided to get some of those more nagging memories of hers on paper.
