Gossipy, scandalous, and laugh-out-loud hilarious, The Princess Diarist is Carrie Fisher’s revealing recollection of what happened behind the scenes on one of the most famous film sets of all time, the first Star Wars movie.
In 2015, Carrie Fisher discovered 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.
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. And 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 candor and introspection of a diary while offering shrewd insight into the type of stardom that few will ever experience.
