Postcards From The Edge Book Review

Fiction, if nothing else, is a dramatization of real life.

The late Carrie Fisher was one of those writers who was brilliantly able to translate her personal life to the page.

Her debut novel was 1987’s Postcards From The Edge. The novel opens with Suzanne Vale, a young actress with a Hollywood pedigree who is in a drug addiction rehabilitation facility. After leaving the facility, she returns to work, but Hollywood, being Hollywood doesn’t make it easy to return to normal life.

Writing about aspects of the human condition that affects us all-money, success, sex, addiction, our own insecurities, etc, Fisher proves once more why she is respected for her writing as she much as she is respected for her acting.

I recommend it.
