Wishful Drinking

Wishful Drinking is a rare glimpse inside the mind of a troubled genius, as well as a peek behind the Hollywood curtain.


November FBOTM Marc was hanging out in varying states of undress at the FBOTU compound the other day, and I told him, “I just finished this great book; you should read it.” Then I thought, “Let’s make everyone read it!” So, I’m pleased to announce our next selection for the FBOTU Book Club: Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher. Wishful Drinking is based on Carrie’s recent one-woman show. Carrie writes openly and candidly about her struggles with fame, drugs and mental illness, all in her hilariously dark and twisted way. You can find Wishful Drinking at your local bookstore or from the online retailers below. I would suggest going to Borders and signing up for a Rewards Card. It’s free and you get discounts and coupons on your purchases there. The Barnes & Noble membership costs to join, but if you don’t have a Borders near you, it might be a good option as well.

Borders: $14.70
Barnes & Noble: $14.70 ($13.23 B&N Member Price)
Amazon: $12.60

The FBOTU Book Club meeting is January 21. At that time, the Book Club thread in the Forum will open, and we’ll have a discussion. Happy reading!
