The Princess Diarist

The Princess Diarist is Carrie Fishers intimate, hilarious and revealing recollection of what happened behind the scenes on one of the most famous film sets of all time, the first Star Wars movie. When Carrie Fisher recently discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preservedplaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naivet, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Today, her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a (sort-of) regular teenager. With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fishers intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all timeand what developed behind the scenes. And today, as she reprises her most iconic role for the latest Star Wars trilogy, 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....

The Princess Diarist Reviews

    Hearing ANYTHING about Star Wars from Carrie was so wonderful. The overall writing is a bit hard to get through at times, but her voice really came through. And it was all sorts of emotional to hear her make so many references to "after her death."

    So I really did enjoy hearing her thoughts, but didn't expect so much of the focus to be around her affair with Harrison. She basically recounts everything that happened from her perspective and includes journal entries from while they were filming the

    Princess Leia was the only princess I looked up to and wished to be growing up. Princess Leia was tough, smart, beautiful, with a fantastic hairstyle and a Jedi for a brother. Also, she had the best looking scoundrel in space, Han Solo. What little girl didn't want to be her? So when this came out, and I heard what it was about, I knew I had to read it.

    Carrie Fisher is a sarcastic, funny and honest writer, not hesitating to write about herself in a not so pretty light. I admire that and so I wi

    Shortly before she died, Carrie Fisher discovered a collection of journals she'd written in 1976 while filming the first Star Wars movie. In The Princess Diarist, Fisher's 1976 journal entries are revealed, giving readers a private look at a confident, successful celebrity when she was just a naive, vulnerable young woman on the brink of stardom.

    Perhaps this was a personal oversight, but the book jacket feels unintentionally misleading. It purports to offer a look at what happened on the set of

    I'm not usually one to read memoirs or even a slice of a tiny and specific autobiography like this, but I was tempted both because of my sadness for her death and the fact that it was nominated for the Hugos this year.

    That being said, I wasn't prepared for how much I enjoyed her quirky and excellent and witty writing, her unabashedly honest reveal about her on-set fling with Harrison Ford, or the nearly unbearably sweet and conflicted original diary, itself.

    Don't go into this expecting a behind

    Y'all, I can't even talk about this right now.

  • Trina (Between Chapters)

    I liked that this book had a central theme, since most non-fiction tends to be a more sprawling narrative. It all revolves around Carrie's experience with Star Wars and what becoming and being knwon as Princess Leai meant to her. I listened to the audiobook and Carrie read it herself, which was kind of a heartbreaking experience because she often ponders what her legacy after her death will be. I, like so many, grew up with Star Wars so I really enjoyed hearing this story.

    I act like someone in a bomb shelter trying to raise everyone’s spirits.

    I put off reading this for about a year, because I am unsure about celebrity memoirs. Of course, I was pleasantly surprised by The Princess Diarist, an audio collab read by Fisher with diary excerpts by daughter Billie Lourd. Fisher possessed great skills of observation and is refreshingly witty. Even as a teenager, Carrie was aware of inequities in her role in Star Wars as compared to her male costars:

    The crew was mostly me

    I can’t promise that this is going to be an objective review; I feel this needs to be made clear from the outset.

    Five days ago, Carrie Fisher died, and in a year of deeply meaningful celebrity deaths from an era of entertainment so many of us look back on fondly, this felt like a final kick in the gut (followed a day later, of course, by her mother, Debbie Reynolds).

    Who do I think I would’ve been if I hadn’t been Princess Leia? Am I Princess Leia, or is she me? Split the difference and you’d be
