Descripción

He was the most charming, handsome, romantic, and famous leading man in the world....what could possibly go wrong?

With unparalleled honesty, Dyan Cannon shares the heartwarming and heartbreaking story of her magical romance and stormy marriage to screen legend Cary Grant. He was the ultimate star, defining Hollywood glamour as well as cinematic achievement. She was a bright new actress, beautiful and funny, who would one day prove her talent by being the first woman to receive Academy Award nominations for her work on-screen and behind the camera.

When he asked to meet Dyan, she assumed it was for an acting part, but he had a different role in mind for her... and so began a storybook romance that brought her to dizzying heights. On his arm, she found herself traveling in the inner circles of power and glamour in which Cary Grant was king, with friends such as Noel Coward, Jimmy Stewart, Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn, and so many others considered Hollywood royalty.

Behind closed doors, she discovered a Cary no one knew. A thoughtful, caring, and private person, with dark family secrets that weighed heavily on him. He was a man contending with the swan song of an astonishing film career while her career was just beginning. Despite the age difference, they fell in love, got married, and had a beautiful daughter together. Happily Ever After still proved elusive, and their relationship was beset with tragic twists and turns. It took a tremendous toll on Dyan as she struggled to keep her heart and mind intact.

Dear Cary is told with poignancy and hard-won wisdom. For anyone who has ever loved and lost, Dyan Cannon’s memoir is an exploration of what love means, and an inspirational story of surviving life’s slings and arrows.

A HarperAudio production.

    I didn't know much about the relationship between Cannon and Grant, other than that they had a child and they divorced soon after she was born. I found it enlightening, in that we don't usually hear about the darker side of our beloved celebrities. Cannon's relationship with Grant followed the typical cycle of abuse. Being charmed by a narcissistic, charismatic man, being wooed and loved, and, then once he had her in his grips, showed his true colours. Fortuneately, Cannon found the strength to get Jennifer and herself out of that situation and break the cycle of abuse. A truly difficult story to tell, but I am glad that Cannon had the courage to share it.

    Dyans candor, love and sensational voice kept me totally engaged and anxious for the next chapter.

    I really enjoyed this story and I think Dyan Cannon did a remarkable job telling such a painful and private tale. Most of the book was a delightful love story, but the love story turned dark after the couple was married. Of course I expected this as I knew they were divorced. Overall there were quite a few lessons to be learned about spousal abuse, fame, drugs, and so on. While Ms. Cannon wasn't physically abused she certainly suffered emotional abuse at the hands of Cary Grant.

    This was a brutally honest book about Dyan Cannon's relationship with Cary Grant, the depth of despair she experienced after she married him, and her journey to becoming whole again. Grant was a very complex individual but also seemed very insecure, and Cannon's analysis of his shortcomings have been covered in other books. She tried her best to understand him and "change" to be the person he wanted. Unfortunately, no matter what she did, she could never become the person he wanted. Yes, there was a 33 year age difference between them and like all girls of Cannon's age, you expect Prince Charming to come along and to everyone, Grant was, and still is, Prince Charming. However, Cannon does not discuss the bitter custody battle that took place with Grant over daughter Jennifer or if she ever met Grant's last wife. This is a great companion piece to daughter Jennifer's book on Cary Grant that was published about the same time.

    This is for the audio version: Read by Dyan Cannon, it's the account of her life with Cary Grant. Perhaps the printed edition would come off better. Cannon does ok, but it sounds like she's reading someone else's writing. For example, she seems to trip over words sometimes that perhaps are words she's not accustomed to using. The story itself was enlightening to someone who knew nothing of Grant's personal life.

    I wasn't thrilled with this book. Cannon makes it seem as if Grant was an LSD crazed maniac willing to give up his career and family simply because she refused to participate in his drug-induced God-seeking journeys. Cannon sounded like a shallow, giggly preadolescence as she described her life with Cary Grant. Not so sure I buy her story.
