Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that locked "Wishful Drinking" on the "New York Times" bestseller list for months, "Shockaholic" is the juicy account of Carrie Fisher's life. Covering a broad range of topics--from never-before-heard tales of Hollywood gossip to outrageous moments of celebrity desperation; from alcoholism to illegal drug use; from the familial relationships of Hollywood royalty to scandalous run-ins with noteworthy politicians; from shock therapy to talk therapy--Carrie Fisher gives an intimate portrait of herself, and she's one of the most indelible and powerful forces in culture at large today. Just as she has said of playing Princess Leia--"It isn't all sweetness and light sabers"--Fisher takes readers on a no-holds-barred narrative adventure, both laugh-out-loud funny and poignant.
