Postcards from the Edge

New York Times Best Selling Cult Classic Novel

Carrie Fisher’s bestselling debut novel is an uproarious commentary on Hollywood.

Immersed in the sometimes harrowing, often hilarious goings-on of the drug hospital and wondering how she’ll cope – and find work – back on the outside, she meets new patient Alex.  He is ambitious, good-looking and in the grip of a monumental addiction. He makes Suzanne realises that there’s always someone who’s even closer to the edge of reason.
