Shockaholic Book Review

One of the best anecdotes about writing that I’ve heard is that a writer has to fully live to be able to create compelling narratives and characters.

The late Carrie Fisher lived more in her 60 years than many of us do in half that time.

Her 2011 memoir, Shockaholic, is a followup to her hit 2009 memoir, Wishful Drinking.

As she did in Wishful Drinking, Ms. Fisher does not leave any stone un-turned. No topic is off-limits. Her family, her past drug abuse,her mental health issues, her career and so much more are all touched on with a fresh, in your face and funny point of view as only Carrie Fisher can create.

I recommend it.

I am Brooklyn, NY born and raised writer who needs writing to find sanity in an insane world. To quote Charlotte Bronte: “I'm just going to write because I cannot help it.”
