    Best Awful is a Best Book

    Insightful, poignant, raucous - I read this when it was first published and again last year - when I was in the midst of a break up (oh woe is me).

    There are some great lines in this book. It's Fisher at her take no prisoners - especially herself - best.

    Great Book!

    I love this book!! I felt like I was having a break down with her. She is such a great writer and you'll love this book. I wished I knew the real names of the people she wrote about.

    She will survive...

    Suzzane Vale from 'Postcards From The Edge' has problems worse than any ordinary individual would have in an office on a Monday. Honestly, I don't know how a woman could have a gay man's child, but that's intended for the comedy. The storyline may sound a bit tragic with the bipolar illness when reading the summary, but it's very captivating and quite funny. I love the girl who makes money off of people swearing.

    Autobiography in Fiction's Clothing

    If you're a fan of Carrie Fisher, then you'll buy this whether I tell you to or not -- and you won't be disappointed. She's as funny as ever. However, she goes deeper in this one than she's ever gone before; in between jokes, she writes so perceptively that I feel as though I know exactly what a psychotic breakdown feels like, and hope more than ever that I'll never have this information confirmed for me. If this is truly an autobiography very very (very) thinly disguised as fiction, then I have to say that Carrie's gay ex is a saint, and I'd love to know who Dean Bradbury is. My money's on Jack Nicholson.
