Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Film), by David M
In her third and final memoir, the real people's princess takes us all the way back to 1976, to the set of what would become the greatest sci-fi/fantasy movie of all time. There are fun anecdotes and nerdy easter eggs, to be sure, but at the heart of The Princess Diarist we are treated, via Fisher's diary entries, to the raw, pure emotion of a young and tender heart, skipping and swelling under the affections of a certain stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder.

When Carrie Fisher discovered the journals she kept during the filming of the first Star Wars movie, she was astonished to see what they had preserved - plaintive love poems, unbridled musings with youthful naiveté, and a vulnerability that she barely recognized. Now her fame as an author, actress, and pop-culture icon is indisputable, but in 1977, Carrie Fisher was just a teenager with an all-consuming crush on her co-star, Harrison Ford.
With these excerpts from her handwritten notebooks, The Princess Diarist is Fisher’s intimate and revealing recollection of what happened on one of the most famous film sets of all time – and what developed behind the scenes. Fisher also ponders the joys and insanity of celebrity, and the absurdity of a life spawned by Hollywood royalty, only to be surpassed by her own outer-space royalty. Laugh-out-loud hilarious and endlessly quotable, The Princess Diarist brims with the candour and introspection of a diary while offering shrewd insight into the type of stardom that few will ever experience.
