What bothers me about it is how Dinah (the main character) accepts the less-than-stellar events of her life. Sure, you can't write a perfect modern woman of the 21st century.

Surrender the Pink book. Carrie Fisher is actually pretty hilarious and I thoroughly enjoyed the book until the main character turned into a blubbering mess. Sorry, I'm a fair-weather friend like that. Also, the ending fell flat for me.

I first read this book many years ago, when it was originally published. Back then, the character of Dinah was older than me and I found her intrepid, amusingly flawed, sharp-witted, and refreshingly daring. Flash forward to Carrie Fisher's tragic death as we entered 2017, and I decided to read the book again as a tribute to one of my favorite wry, witty, funny female entertainers/authors. Interestingly, my perspective has changed with age. I now find some of the writing in this novel a bit sloppy and hard to follow. For example, the "active" romantic relationship between Dinah and Rudy is glossed over in just a few pages, using fictitious soap opera scenes to (I gather) convey some of the more significant relationship milestones. Sometimes Dinah refers to Rudy as "her boyfriend," other time "her husband." So this aspect was a bit more muddled than I recalled. Additionally, I no longer find the character of Dinah quite as sympathetic as I once did. In many scenes, she comes across as utterly, almost irritatingly self-absorbed. But the book's humor and wit are still very much intact; and it contains some extremely funny lines and amusingly disastrous situations. If nothing else, give it a read to sample the supremely singular and witty talents of Carrie Fisher -- at a time when her artistic voice was solidifying into the distinctive tour-de-force it was destined to become.

The "man-woman thing" which define relationships, attitudes in the workplace and in romantic settings is playfully presented, yet complex issues and themes emerge and are developed beautifully by a very wise and sad and sagacious writer, who uses humor and Insights into human and male/female behaviors to show human imperfections and still very different views which men and women have towards love, work, marriage, commitment, and RESPECT for each other. Shows how and why male/female relationships go "South" even when the characters do have the best of intentions. A brilliant character study of a complex subject. And a great read from a woman's point of view. Men would learn much from reading this about understanding the female of the species and human mating rituals and complex relationships. It avoids stereotypes to get to the heart of matters of the heart, both on the male and the female side of the equation.

Carrie Fisher has a rare talent: she can write well, coherently, and wittily. Her books have me laughing one minute, and crying shortly after that. She seems to learned how to make lemonade from the lemons fate handed her.

Carrie Fisher (RIP) wrote short sentences. Very short sentences. Wrote in pithy observation of her mind's inner working. One suspects she would have been happier at Oxford U than Hollywood. She was a cuttlefish among striped bass.

I love this book. It still makes me laugh aloud.

If you want to know more about Carrie Fischer & Paul Simon's relationship - read this. It's funny and sad and kind and silly.

Best line: "Bend over. Bend over so I can get over you."

First of all, this book follows a different lead character and doesn't follow the same story as Postcards From The Edge. However, both leads are enraptured by their own individual tragic-ness and how they use their wits and personality to cope up with this. That's pretty much where the similarity lies, and that is perhaps because both ladies are drawn from aspects of Carrie Fisher's reality. In this case though, we are brought with a book that douses itself in just as much introspection but lays in the floods of your usual "girl troubles" teen novel.

Ok, actual review - Surrender the Pink is alright. What bothers me about it is how Dinah (the main character) accepts the less-than-stellar events of her life. Sure, you can't write a perfect modern woman of the 21st century. That just wouldn't be interesting or realistic. However, unlike Postcards' Suzanne, Dinah isn't a sympathetic character. You just don't root for her, flaws and all. Her character is written so that she finds ways to enable the cruddy men in her life while at the same time pigeonholing all men in general with this thwarted version of manhood. And somehow, as the reader, I wasn't drawn in the same way as Postcards. I found myself thinking, "Damn it, Dinah. Pull yourself together!" Even though, between Suzanne and herself, she could arguably be called the more "stable" one, she just came out as frustrating rather than someone to root for.

Anyway, this isn't a negative review, really. The book has its moments and there are many profound lines to be found in it. The pacing is also more steady than Postcards. But overall, I didn't enjoy the story as much as its predecessor because here was a tale of a girl who I wasn't sure I wanted to follow in the first place.

p.s. Saw some reviews negatively reacting to the "sex" aspect of the book. Really? The book's title itself is a sexual reference. What did you expect?
