The title of Carrie Fisher’s funny, sardonic little memoir is a bit misleading. Drinking seems to have been the least of her problems. Pills were more her thing, and for a while hallucinogens. As a teenager, she dropped so much acid that her parents called in the greatest LSD expert they knew: Cary Grant.

Her parents were Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, and that was part of the problem. They were the Jennifer and Brad of their day, the tabloids’ favorite couple, with Elizabeth Taylor, for whom Mr. Fisher left his wife and family, eventually taking on the role of Angelina, plusher and without the tattoos. “You might say I’m a product of Hollywood inbreeding,” Ms. Fisher writes. “When two celebrities mate, something like me is the result.”

Making It Real: Photomontage Before Photoshop at Keith de Lellis Gallery in New York. "...a group exhibition of photographic-montage produced in the 19th and 20th centuries using low-tech, pre-computer age ingenuity. These hand-wrought and darkroom created images have been painstakingly produced by innovative photographers who developed the technical know-how and craftsmanship, to forsake reality for the 'constructed image.'"
