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

  • Mark

    Well, I think this is going to be an unpopular opinion but although I read this book quickly I just could not get into it. Admittedly I was after a "behind the scenes of Star Wars" Carrie Fisher and with that in mind, I was way off the mark here.

    This is Carrie's last written word before her sad passing - I am sure we all agree that the world lost a beautiful woman and a great talent on that day. What started out in the right direction for me soon became a laborious read. Carrie introduces us to

    I remember when I found out how young Carrie Fisher was when she was cast as Princess Leia (barely nineteen!) I wondered what it would be like to have your first real job be Princess Leia.

    Well, kids, wonder no more! Here are her memories, her musings, and even her crappy teenage poetry about getting cast, meeting the cast, getting her buns on, and how being Princess Leia changed her life. The writing is wry and much more coy than I thought it would be, but it was a very interesting glimpse into

    I knew this was going to be good, so as I usually do, I put off reading it for a while. When I finally got to it, I was sucked in immediately. Carrie Fisher is at once hilarious and thought-provoking, and her commentary looking back on the time of the filming of Star Wars, as well as her diary entries, are fascinating. I’m definitely going to read her other writing when I get the chance.

    Growing up loving the movie Star Wars, this was a great behind the scenes look into the lives of the cast. Carrie is a funny writer and she has a knack for writing about the human condition. I laughed at all the scenes she paints with questions her fans ask her during book signing and some of them are poignant. I'm sad we lost Carrie last year and I'm glad we have this lasting memory of her and her experience as Princess Leia.

  • 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.

    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

    This book is effectively divided into three sections:

    1. 2016 Carrie Fisher talks about starting out as an actress, getting cast as Princess Leia and her affair with Harrison Ford.

    2. 1976 Carrie Fisher's diary entries made during her affair with Harrison Ford.

    3. 2016 Carrie Fisher talks about her relationship with Harrison Ford post-affair and her struggles with being Leia over the course of the next 40 years, particularly when it comes to interacting with fans.

    I loved all three sections, fran

    "I am someone who wants very much to be popular. I don't just want you to like me, I want to be one of the most joy-inducing human beings that you've ever encountered. I want to explode on your night sky like fireworks at midnight on New Year's Eve in Hong Kong" (47).

    This is going to be a difficult book to review. I've never reviewed a book so close to the author's passing, and it was a sad and bittersweet experience - sad, because the worl
