6 Degrees of Separation: From Hollywood to Southern France

Today’s post participates in #6DegreesofSeparation hosted by Kate at booksaremyfavouriteandbest. The gist is that everyone starts with the same book, then finds another book that relates to it somehow, then one that relates to the second, until you’ve got a chain of six additional books. It’s a twist on the theory that every person on earth can somehow be connected to any other person in six or fewer steps, and provides an opportunity to talk about random books we love (or don’t).

Today’s starting point is a book that Carrie Fisher published in 2002. To be honest, I didn’t realize she had written more than one book. I’m not a Star Wars fan or even a big fan of cinema generally so it wasn’t really a surprise. It’s an interesting starting point, let’s see where we go from here!

Starting Point: Postcards from the Edge by Carrie Fisher

Postcards from the Edge

Genre: Contemporary Fiction

Have I Read It?: No

Synopsis: Fisher beautifully brings readers the inside of Hollywood through a web of humor, drugs, relationships, Hollywood Party Terror, and much more. The plot centers on a 30-year-old actress named Suzanne Vale, and follows her challenges as she overcomes her drug addiction, gets back into the swing of things, and falls in love, sort of.

Visit booksaremyfavoriteandbest to see what books other bloggers have connected from the same starting point. I didn’t expect this to turn into a mini tour of my Historical Fiction TBR shelf, but thinking about the books in this list that I haven’t yet read has me excited about them again!

Have you read Postcards from the Edge? And, do you think I’m crazy for not enjoying Star Wars?

Until the next chapter,

Jana
