My current read is Carrie Fisher's The Princess Diarist, which came out in 2016, and has this passage:
I've told the story of getting cast as Princess Leia many times before -- in interviews, on horseback, and in cardiac units -- so if you've previously heard this story before, I apologize for requiring some of your coveted store of patience.


Damn, that "cardiac unit" comment feels like a kick to the gut.

As with any of Carrie's books (fiction or nonfiction), I do highly recommend it. The world's a lesser place without her

ETA: And there in the acknowledgements at the end:
For my mother -- for being too stubborn and thoughtful to die. I love you, but that whole emergency, almost dying thing, wasn't funny. Don't even THINK about doing it again in any form.
