"Fisher is a writer, an observer, and a keen one at that. Her way with words, even though she claims electroshock treatments have made her forget many of them, is raw and raucous."--"Booklist" "Amazing . . . pretty fascinating stuff."--Rosie O'Donnell ("Windy City Times" interview) "Fisher is a girl who knows how to tell a story . . . she can make us laugh, she can make us cringe, but she can also teach a great deal about the power of forgiveness."--"People" (4-star review) "Plenty more weird episodes are packed into [Carrie Fisher's] latest memoir, "Shockaholic". . . . Some of the stories are heartbreakingly sad, yet Fisher makes them laugh-out-loud funny on the page."--"Sunday Sun" (UK) "Fisher is a storyteller, very happy to make jokes at her own expense . . . "Shockaholic" will only enhance her reputation as Hollywood's unofficial amateur therapist."--"The Guardian "(London) "For those who are partial to Fisher's sharp and acerbic take on things, her sense of the absurd clearly derived from firsthand experience, "Shockaholic . . . "doesn't disappoint." "Carrie Fisher goes from pathos to punch line with a flick of her wit." --"Louisville Courier-Journal" "There's no such thing as TMI in Carrie Fisher's world, and that's why we're hooked on her new memoir, "Shockaholic"."--"Ladies' Home Journal" "Hilarious."--"Marie Claire" "Fisher is, at her core, a very good writer who's able to keep us entertained. Fisher deserves praise for being up front about the [electroshock] therapy...If she wants to keep talking, we'll keep listening."--"Los Angeles Times" "[Fisher] never lets herself veer into woe-is-me-ism. With charming shamelessness, she conducts a brisk and witty tour of her life, delivering up her tragedies as a nonstop laugh riot."--"Elle" "Hollywood's new poor little rich girl . . . continues her tour down the rabbit hole of Crazy Town, sparking us through brightly lit secret corridors while twisting self-deprecation into an art form. Fisher's wordplay is wicked, relentless, and playful as a bouncy house full of polar bear cubs."--"San Francisco Chronicle" "Fisher's word choices and comedic rhythm echo such literary comic masters as S.J. Perelman and Woody Allen . . . she proves the ripe adage that comedy really is tragedy plus time. Grade: A-" --"Cleveland Plain Dealer" ["Shockaholic"] stands out beautifully from what has become the madding memoir crowd."--"Buffalo News" "Modern American literature has an enviable tradition of wisecracking dames nursing broken hearts or fragile psyches dating back to Dorothy Parker. To that list we can add Carrie Fisher. . . . We are now well used to the kind of celebrity confessional which details the darker aspects of the celebrity lifestyle. It is to Fisher's credit that she has walked the same route with the kind of panache that makes us laugh."--"The Telegraph" (Belfast) "Fisher's memoir "Shockaholic", the follow-up to her successful autobiography and one-woman show, "Wishful Drinking", is similarly witty, ramshackle, and outrageous."--"Washington Post"

Reseña del editor:

Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that placed Wishful Drinkingon the New York Timesbestseller list for months, Untitledis the juicy account of Carrie Fisher's life, focusing mostly on the Star Wars years. Chosen to play Princess Leia when she was only nineteen years old, Fisher delves into the gritty details that made the movie -- and herself -- such a phenomenal success, admitting 'It isn't all sweetness and light sabers'.
