Five notable Hollywood tell-alls

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five top Hollywood tell-alls:
Wishful Drinking
by Carrie Fisher

Carrie Fisher dispensed with the semi-autobiographical fiction of Postcards from the Edge and embraced the personal memoir whole-heartedly in this candid account of a booze-soaked, drug-addled career. What was it like to grow up the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, Hollywood royalty and terrible parents? How did it feel to hold a PEZ dispenser that resembled her head? And what did she do when she woke up next to a friend in bed one morning, only to realize he was dead? Fisher answers to the best of recollection in this book, based on her one-woman show of the same name.
