Don’t get me wrong, Fisher is great at adding comedy to her writing. But the content of the message she’s getting across could be improved.
I dove into this book expecting to read more about her struggles with substance abuse. But instead it seemed to be a big abstract telling of various parts in her life, especially portrayals of those around her.
And yes, I was very interested to learn that she too (along with other memoir authors I’ve read) has been diagnosed as bipolar. However, her descriptions of Bipolar I vs. II are confused. She switched their symptoms completely on page 117. I’m always a little disgusted by published, incorrect “facts”.
But the book is in fairly large print, so it’s a quick read. And I suppose it gives you a small glimpse into the life of a troubled star. Just don’t expect too much.
