Actress, director, and entertainer Joely Fisher invites readers behind the curtain and into the intimate world of her career and family with this hilarious, irreverent, heartfelt memoir filled with candid and sometimes painful stories about her life, her famous parents, and how the loss of her sister and unlikely hero, Carrie Fisher, ignited the writer in her.
Growing up in an iconic Hollywood dynasty, no stranger to the seesaw of highs and lows (and getting high) intrinsic to fame, Joely was always destined for a career in show business. The product of world-famous crooner and playboy Eddie Fisher and ’60s sex kitten turned skin care maven Connie Stevens, she struggled with her own identity and bore the sting of inevitable missteps and setbacks on the path to establishing herself as an acclaimed actress, singer, and director in her own right.
Now Joely shares stories of her unconventional coming-of-age and of the family members dearest to her heart, never shying away from the darker moments as she strips bare the misadventures of her life. In Growing Up Fisher, she tells of her childhood years living next door to Debbie Reynolds, life on the road as part of her mother’s stage show, and the colorful cast of characters that became part of her de facto extended tribe. She speaks frankly about the realities of Hollywood-the fame and fortune, the constant scrutiny. Throughout, she celebrates the anomaly of a two-decade marriage in the entertainment industry, and the joys and challenges of parenting five children, while dishing on what it takes to survive and thrive in the unrelenting glow of celebrity. She opens up about the heartbreak of losing family members and the indomitable Fisher spirit that has kept her soldiering on through tough times and celebrated victories.
Joely’s memoir, with never-before-seen photos, will break and warm your heart and, in true Fisher fashion, keep you laughing through the pain.
