The loss of Carrie Fisher is, to me, incalculable. Not only due to Star Wars (confession: I’m a HUGE fan), but because her writing is transformative, funny, and addictive. It is no different with her latest, and regrettably last, work, The Princess Diarist. It details her time on the first Star Wars film before it became a cultural phenomenon. It’s also the writings, yearnings, and confusion of a 19-year-old girl who had no clue what she was about to be propelled into. She will always be Princess Leia, but to me she was also a first-rate storyteller.
