    Uncannily About Being Dead/Tending the Dying

    A small book indeed, and quite rambling. I was looking for "Postcards from the Edge" or "Surrender the Pink", tho I've read both. Neither seems to have made it to digital. I wanted to hear CF's voice one more time--and it's certainly on display here. In this short memoir (more 'random thoughts') she explains how she decided on electro-shock therapy to help her with her depression and why she now uses it frequently. In part of the reminiscences, she recounts some more recent events that led her back into drugs and alcohol--and lost her custody of her then-young daughter Billie. She seems to have a much closer and more tolerant relationship with Debbie than she ever showed in her novels. And she forgave Eddie so much than she spent the last 7 years of his life caring for him and learning to love him. Of course her acerbic, self-deprecating voice is there--loud and clear. And though this was written 6-8 years ago (there's some overlap with her one-woman show--and book--"Wishful Drinking"), there is an uncanny awareness of mortality, including her own. At one point she says, ruefully, to her younger friends: "Someday you'll be playing pool and a newsflash will come on the bar TV. There'll be my Princess Leia picture and two dates--the beginning and the end. And you'll turn to each other and say, 'Yeah, she said it was going to be like that.' And then you'll go back to playing pool."

    A great read from a great lady. Another look into the crazy life of someone who has done it all, met everyone and been fabulous the whole way. It's funny how simultaneously relatable and utterly unrelatable her life has been.

    I love Carrie Fisher's writing and I love reading about her crazy life. I appreciate her honesty - I laughed, almost cried, and laughed some more. Just wish the book had been a little longer..
