there has been a great disturbance in the force :(

'Well, who knows, who knows,' he replied.

'Dostoevsky's dead,' said the citizeness, but somehow not very confidently.

'I protest!' Behemoth exclaimed hotly. 'Dostoevsky is immortal!”

I knew she had some health issues of late but this is pretty sad. Talk about an icon of a generation - the 70's was my teen era so I remember the adulation well. RIP Carrie...

I remember going to the very 1st Star Wars Film; taking my little brother and sister. Afterwards, in the car, they were still filled with excitement over the film, and as I drove them home, mentioned, "we are entering one of the most dangerous places in the known universe; the Parking Lot".

This was yet another year's shock; she was much too young. It is a great loss, and a sad day; I wish her family well.

Very sad. I didn't realise she was only 60 though. When she was on QI a few years ago she looked and sounded old, and didn't really contribute much, except a few chat show-type anecdotes about her mother.

Such a contrast to the original Star Wars film, where George Lucas really captured her looking both beautiful and feisty! I guess she looked mighty fine in the next two films as well, but Lucas's ability to craft a good story really nose-dived.

Didn't they make a film out of her book, Postcards From The Edge? If so is it worth watching?

It's worth a look. Pretty open and uncomfortable at times...
