This year for Valentine's Day instead of flowers I wanted Carrie Fisher's new autobiography, so that is what my obliging husband gave me. I am confident Fisher will be able to provide a type of insight into Hollywood that I would not be able to obtain otherwise. I can't wait to devour this one. I read an autobiography by Judy Dench a few months ago and found it interesting but it focused heavily on a time frame that has all but disappeared so most of the players--except the younger ones like Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson--were unknown to me. The more movies I watch that tell stories from a man's perspective the more I enjoy reading actresses' memoirs and autobiographies.
