The original title of the book: The Princess Diarist

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.
With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is 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. Fisher also 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.

"Smart and funny...the pages crackle with one-liners" (Guardian)"It’s an eye-opener for fans, but it also shows a gifted writer even at a young age. There was a lot going on between Princess Leia’s hair buns." (USA Today)"An unflinching, sometimes painful, sometimes hilarious look inside the mind of a 19-year-old … It’s invasive, juicy, sad, nostalgic and gripping all at once. It’s as if you’ve knocked the lock off of your cooler older sister’s journal and discovered she’s been sleeping with the hottest boy in school this whole time." (LA Times)"Fisher offers a thoughtful, sardonic meditation on the price of fame, cost-of-living adjustments included." (J.D. Biersdorfer The New York Times Book Review)"[The Princess Diarist] is a radical truth bomb" (Julia Felsenthal VOGUE.com)"Carrie Fisher was so real it was dangerous…. My God, girls, we owe her a lot." (Sharon Horgan)"She didn't need The Force. She was a force of nature, of loyalty and of friendship." (Steven Spielberg)

    I am always disappointed with someone who loves me - how perfect can he be if he can't see through me?As a lifelong Star Wars fan, this was already on my radar. However with the recent and tragic passing of Carrie Fisher, I instantly elevated it to my first read of 2017 - and what a read it was.A warning here - often Fisher's thoughts are disordered and chaotic; she was a rambler. If you don't think you'd like that then perhaps this isn't the book for you. However this is also painfully heartfelt in a way which makes you breathe that little bit harder and labour over each page - especially the diary entries themselves. Fisher's insecurity and self consciousness radiates through in the forms of disjointed sentences and poetry. She is candid about her teenage years and the beginnings of her foray into the world of Star Wars and celebrity.She also goes into some detail about her affair with Harrison Ford during the filming of episode four. This too is bittersweet - with Fisher clearly developing feelings which Ford doesn't return. There's nothing explicit or titillating about her account. Instead she reveals the emotional affair she felt she had (and the lack of one which Ford seemed to experience).Carrie Fisher seemed like a witty, expressive, creative woman. For all her struggles she writes with a brutal and compelling honesty which captured me as a reader from the first page. Her loss is one the world is bereft by. This, her last work, is an absolute must read.

    It's a book about her affair with Harrison Ford and that's it. Those 12 words sum up the book as once you know this the book doesn't tell you anything else. I found Carrie Fisher really funny in interviews but this has none of her humour.

    I bought this for my partner for his birthday and it was very well received, especially as he's a Star Wars geek. We highly recommend this book, my partner says it's sooooo interesting and fascinating finding out the background story of the actors especially the relationship between Harrison Ford and herself.

    As always, brilliant writing. Bought for perusing by the pool. Made the mistake of starting whilst waiting for take off. Finished before landing. A page turner suitable for star wars geeks and fans of entertaining, talented ladies like Ms Fisher. The only Princess I ever wanted to be, uber talented and feisty as hell!!!

    Carrie Fisher at her finest. I read this with sadness that she is no longer here. A lifelong fan of star wars, she was ahead of her time. A brief insight into her life at the very start of her fame.Forever missed. Truly gifted and witty.

    Carrie Fisher is a tragic loss both as a writer and an actress. In the Princess Diarist she documents her time in the Star Wars films with characteristic honesty and humour, giving us an entertaining and revealing glimpse into the changes she went through during that formative period of her life.
