The Princess Diarist is a 2016 memoir written by Carrie Fisher, based on diaries she kept as a young woman around the time she starred in the 1977 film Star Wars. The book is the third memoir Fisher wrote, in addition to four novels and a one-woman Broadway show. It is Fisher's final book, as she died five weeks after its release on December 27, 2016.
The Washington Post's Sibbie O'Sullivan described the book as cringe-worthy, but said, "this memoir is also educational, if you overlook its authorial excesses." Anthony Breznican writing in Entertainment Weekly gave the book a rating of B−, saying, "There isn't a lot of insight into the character or the creation of a movie that means so much to so many, but there's tremendous insight into the volatile heart of a young woman, seen through the eyes of her wiser, older self still seeking her place in the universe."
