Biographer Sheila Weller (GIRLS LIKE US) provides an unbiased, absolutely riveting account of the troubled life of Carrie Fisher (19562016). Narrator Saskia Maarleveld's enthusiasm makes Weller's exhaustive research as engaging as fiction. The daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and the "unsinkable" Debbie Reynolds, Fisher spent her early life in the company of some of Hollywood's most recognizable names. At 19, she was cast as Princess Leia in the Star Wars saga, which turned her into an instant "feminist action hero" and cultural icon. Weller's detailed, well-documented research covers Fisher's drug addiction, alcoholism, bipolar disorder, rocky relationships --including her marriage to Paul Simon--and her eventual career as a bestselling author. Maarleveld captures the gossip, glitter, and glam of a slightly tarnished Tinseltown. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
