** THE NEW YORK TIMES-BESTSELLING CULT CLASSIC NOVEL ** ** In a new edition introduced by Stephen Fry ** 'I don't think you can even call this a drug. This is just a response to the conditions we live in.'   Suzanne Vale, formerly acclaimed actress, is in rehab, feeling like 'something on the bottom of someone's shoe, and not even someone interesting'. Immersed in the sometimes harrowing, often hilarious goings-on of the drug hospital and wondering how she'll cope - and find work - back on the outside, she meets new patient Alex. Ambitious, good-looking in a Heathcliffish way and in the grip of a monumental addiction, he makes Suzanne realize that, however eccentric her life might seem, there's always someone who's even closer to the edge of reason.   Carrie Fisher's bestselling debut novel is an uproarious commentary on Hollywood - the home of success, sex and insecurity - and has become a beloved cult classic.   'This novel, with its energy, bounce and generous delivery of a loud laugh on almost every page, stands as a declaration of war on two fronts: on normal and on unhappy' STEPHEN FRY 'A single woman's answer to Nora Ephron's Heartburn . . . the smart successor to Joan Didion's Play It as It Lays' Los Angeles Times   'A cult classic . . . A wonderfully funny, brash and biting novel' Washington Post 'A wickedly shrewd black-humor riff on the horrors of rehab and the hollows of Hollywood life' People 'Searingly funny' Vogue… (més)

Brilliantly funny and revealing what drugs do to a person. ( )

It's dated and heavy on a rarified lifestyle. but Fisher is deadly funny. I'm glad she turned to memoir and essay: she is not strong on narrative. I appreciate her honesty, humor, and insight especially into addiction and self-image. ( )

Well fuck me. That was incredible. Who knew Carrie Fisher could write like that?

I adored this book. The characters are so human and relatable despite living in an almost completely unrelatable Hollywood fantasy land.

I can see lots of people not liking this book, the other reviews are certainly mixed. But, if you've ever been fucked up in the head and have ever found being a human and simple existing a baffling and troublesome experience then this is for you. It's all about being a mess and failing and getting help and struggling to get anywhere and accidentally succeeding, and it's so engrossing and moorish.

It's witty, sharp, insightful, uplifting and really nice and wonderfully encouraging. 6 stars, will read again. ( )

Surely a best seller only because of the famous author. Mildly entertaining; perhaps more appreciated by a younger reader than myself. Life angst is just foreign to me. ( )

Funny story about an actress in Hollywood who goes to drug rehab and what happens in her life afterward. ( )
