Ms. Fisher's sudden death late last year adds poignancy to her memories of the experience of making Star Wars A New Hope in 1976. She spent a lot of time and many pages working through the pain and confusion caused by her affair with Harrison Ford. After this book came out, she publicly admitted her regrets about revealing the relationship. Miss Fisher and her writing are at their best when pondering the joys and sorrows of fame, and life in general.
A bittersweet look back at the days before an unheralded science fiction/fantasy movie hit like a huge meteor.
