you know that moment, at the party you didn t want to come to, filled with the important people from work who don t really like you, standing in the corner of the apartment marked specifically for losers and the apartment cat who is now drunk and stuffed on mini shrimp popper appetizers the moment where you realize that you didn t wear the right shoes, your dress is being worn as a shirt by the most beautiful woman in the room, and everyone in the entire WORLD is staring at you when they are not too busy rubbing elbows, sucking up, or have just plain finished judging everyone closest too them and have run out of material yeah, that moment.
i ve never been addicted to cocaine, so i can t really review what i don t know but let s be honest it sounded AWESOME carrie fisher, i didn t think standing around being stoned in the empire strikes back was going to prepare you for a I enjoyed Carrie s first novel It was witty and interesting Suzanne is obviously based loosely on her life from other stories I have read of hers I feel like this was one of the first behind the scenes of Hollywood I m sure there were things before this, but this was a big tell all basically.
There was the rehab portion, the looking for love portion of the book and the part where she is trying to accept normal portion I felt the dialogue was snappy, there were funny moments I enjoy the story I was entertained For a debut author, I think this was a strong start I have 3 Carrie books left.
In her first piece of fiction, Fisher seeks to relay some sentiments through this quasi biographical story Suzanne Vale is an actress who has succumbed to the horrors of addiction and finds herself in a treatment facility While there, she recounts some of her views on fellow addicts and the trials of life on the inside Released back into her real world, Vale begins the slow process of re establishing herself, securing a new agent while trying to return to the life she knows so well However, as seems to be the yoke of all those who have tasted fame, she finds herself in a form of purgatory, unsure where she fits in and how others will see her By the end of this short piece, she has found a form of amorous connection, though it is unclear if it will be long lasting Truly a scattering of thoughts that tries to rela This was Ms Carrie Fisher s debut novel and it s a good one It s honest, fun, and quite realistic of the struggles of being a recovering pills addict and famous actress who doesn t quite know what normal is but trying to find a sense of normalcy Like everyone in the world, Suzanne has doubts about herself, her life choices, and career as a movie star and I understood and connected with that I m a worrier and Suzanne is a worrier too The only thing I didn t quite like about the plot is how we heard a little about Suzanne s mom or her co workers on the cop movie she was working on in the book We didn t hear about them after the sections they were mentioned in and I would have enjoyed hearing about how she felt about her mom and how the movie turned out Thankfully we heard about a few other people in Suzanne s life like her friend Lucy and her beau near the Motherfucking goddam shit Rest in peace Carrie, you were wonderful Get better soon Carrie, you wonderful nutbag Am listening to Hearts and Bones and sending thoughts and strength and health in your direction.
Sometimes I feel like I ve got my nose pressed up against the window of a bakery, only I m the bread.
In Postcards from the Edge, Carrie Fisher writes a part fiction, part memoirs account about the highs and lows of life in Hollywood And by that, I mean the highs of drug consumption followed by the lows of withdrawal during the inevitable stay in rehab.
It is truly fascinating to listen to the her voice spewing the most intricate, absurdist, intellectual and insightful witticisms, trying to catch every nuance and subtlety of the jokes that keep coming at you at a hundred miles an hour You get a little bit of an understanding of the sheer power of Fisher s intelligence as well as wondering just how painful and exhausting it must be to live inside her out of control freigh
Suzanne, with her endearingly honest voice, grows on you She s so i Postcards from the Edge is the semi autobiographical novel based on the turbulent life of Carrie Fisher.
The first third of the story recounting 30 days of actress Suzanne Vale s life in rehab was pretty intense and nerve racking readingfor meand if you can get through lives and stories of drug dealers, addicts and rather disgusting Hollywood types in those pages, the rest of the novel will be a breeze.
While I loved the movie with its witty and sarcastic dark humor, the novel came acrossfor meas kind of a downer, and except for a few similarities here and there, quite different from the flick.
Overall, despite her Hollywood fame and superstar upbringing, I came away from this read feeling sad and sorry for Carrie Fisher with all the difficulties she faced For someone who suffered from drug addiction and depression, Carrie Fisher was a force to be reckoned with when it came to being in touch with her feelings She really puts them out there in the embodiment of Suzanne Vale, the novel s main character Geez, she must have felt incredibly vulnerable doing so, too both as a big celebrity presence and as a former addict If anyone in Hollywood and America didn t know her story, they knew now And was she funny There are some truly memorable lines here I laughed out loud at the scene between Suzanne and Jack Burroughs, as they talk at length about their non relationship Not to mention, the very heady insightfulness found in the story, which is ultimately, about growing up and having hope I could relate to many of the sound bites found here, about men, dating, love, depression, body parts Why couldn t I articulate them as well Since the novel
