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 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.
With rare photos and never-before-seen letters and notes
from Cary Grant, 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
