Oh, Carrie Fisher. She is hysterical, which is this book's redeeming quality. I wouldn't call this so much a "memoir of her life as a bi-polar drug addict" as a bi-polar rambling. Many of the chapters are disjointed and I had to take a moment to figure out what she was talking about.
However, if you look at this for more entertainment instead of for information regarding recovery/etc, it's extremely enjoyable. So many of the outbursts and stories told are great. I was cracking up.
Is this a great piece of writing? No. But she's funny, and that makes all the difference.
