The Princess Diarist is the latest, and sadly last, of Carrie Fisher’s autobiographies.

Upon finding a box of diaries written during the filming of Star Wars: A New Hope in her house, Carrie decides to share them with the world. We are treated to excerpts from these, including some brutal entries about loneliness and self-doubt, alongside love/hate poetry for her co-star Harrison Ford, whom she reveals was having an affair with.

Carrie’s writing is refreshingly frank, as ever, and she remains one of the most important advocates for mental health. A must-read for Star Wars fans, for those who want to understand bipolar better, and for anyone who has ever been in love.

Carrie was a gift to the mental health advocacy community and she is much missed by those she helped.
