A Life on the EdgeBook - 2019
Sheila Weller traces Carrie Fisher's life from her Hollywood royalty roots to her untimely and shattering death just days before Christmas 2016. Weller exposes us to the demons that haunted Fisher all her life, particularly bipolar disorder and a drug addiction from which she could never quite free herself. Sourced by friends, colleagues, and witnesses to all stages of Fisher's life, this is an affectionate and even-handed portrayal of a woman whose unsurpassed honesty is a reminder of how things should be.
