I read this book when I Carrie Fisher died today and now the interwebs are exploding with billions of fangirls who never watched a Star Wars movie until the Manic Pixies told them they should. That sounds hateful, but I don't really give a shit mean it to be. (Confession: I'm not a ginormous Star Wars fan myself. I am a huge Carrie Fisher fan, though, and it's mainly due to this book.

When we first meet the extraordinary young actress Suzanne Vale, she's feeling like "something on the bottom of someone's shoe, and not even someone interesting." Suzanne is in the harrowing and hilarious throes of drug rehabilitation, trying to understand what happened to her life and how she managed to land in a "drug hospital." Just as Fisher's first film role-the precocious teenager in Shampoo-echoed her own Beverly Hills upbringing, her first book is set within the world she knows better than anyone else: Hollywood. More of a fiction montage than a novel in the conventional sense, this stunning literary debut chronicles Suzanne's vivid, excruciatingly funny experiences-from the clinic to her coming to terms with life in the outside world. Conversations with her psychiatrist-"What worries me is, what if this guy is really the one for me and I haven't had enough therapy to be comfortable with having found him?"; a high-concept, eighties-style affair-"The only way to become intimate for me is repeated exposure. My route to intimacy is routine. I establish a pattern with somebody and then I notice when they're not there?" Sparked by Suzanne's-and Carrie Fisher's-deliciously wry sense of the absurd, Postcards from the Edge is more than a book about stardom and drugs. It is a revealing look at the dangers-and delights-of all our addictions, from money and success to sex and insecurity.

Carrie indeed is more than General Leila! She says it as it is and is (now was) very brave with her own struggles with all her own mental and physical challenges! I have always known that all that gliters is not gold but had never read this humorously pathetic and candid from an insider of the "Hollywoods" - a name which I find so pregnant with sarcasm! I would have loved to know if Suzanne Vale ever got to doing the legs!!! Carrie forever in my heart with gratitude for all the light she shed on mental health and illness and struggles and addiction etc! My recommendation of this book goes without any hesitation but be prepared to laugh so hard

This is a private look into the lives of the Hollywood celebrities,striving actors, actresses and writers. Carrie Fisher spins the tales and adventures of Suzanne Vale with a humorous twist that will surely have you laughing out loud. Suzanne spends time in rehab, has bouts with depression between acting jobs, witnesses the musical chairs of the dating game and indulges herself with high-end shopping sprees. Carrie Fisher gives a peek into the daily lives of those on the Hollywood scene and sheds light on the fact that ‘all that glitters is not gold.'

Carrie Fisher is witty and funny. She sprinkles this story with bits of her own true story which ultimately makes the reader feel a bit sad about the circumstances that lead the main character to enter rehab.

I read this books years ago but decided to buy a copy for my home library. I really enjoyed this book the first time I read it, and the movie was good as well. Although it is not classified as a biography, it is largely based on actress Carrie Fisher's life. If you appreciate a sarcastic sense of humor that can sometimes be pretty dark, I think you will enjoy this book.

Gave up after the first 26 pages.

excellent read, both funny and tragic. Fisher allows me to see her squirmy insides and shiny battle armour of self deprecating humour. This book is comforting and entertaining for someone dear to me who is also bi polar and laughed til they almost cried whilst reading this. Thanks Ms Fisher.

I love Carrie Fisher & really wanted to love this book but I didn't. I felt really disconnected from the first part of her story. The book gets better but wasn't great. Sorry Carrie! <3
It's not a page-turner, but she was so cool, I give her credit for just being her.
