Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Actress Dyan Cannon's relationship with film legend Cary Grant was short, tumultuous, and, by every description, odd. When they began living together, she was 25; he was 58. Three years later, they married, but within a year and a half, she left him, amidst reports of loud arguments and spanking episodes. Their divorce, finalized in 1968, was a major news splash even in that pre-TMZ, pre-internet era. Grant died in 1983, but Cannon has continued to wrestle with the details, the rights, and the wrongs of their relationship. Dear Cary is a memoir that celebrates and scrutinizes the great love of her life.

    Amazing Book! Very Classy Woman

    Let me start off by saying that I love Cart Grant's movies and thought we was an amazing actor and I did not really know a lot about Dyan Cannon beside the fact that they were married and he had his only child with her so I figured it would be a good book to read. I figured that I would read this book and be mad about the things she said about him but I was very happy to find that nothing she said upset me. She seems like a very nice lady and seemed liked she loved him and their daughter very much. It had a lot of happy parts and sad parts but that is how life goes. You have your good memories and your bad memories. I definitely recommend that everyone read this book. You won't be disappointed.

    Timeless!

    Cary Grant made more classic movies than anybody can count, and now Dyan Cannon has written what will probably be regarded years hence as a classic memoir of her relationship with him. I was expecting the usual celebrity memoir, but this one really reads like a novel in all the best ways. It's really sharply in focus, parts of it are funny as hell, and although we know the outcome, I couldn't stop rooting for them to work it out. It's really very tender story and very entertaining and moving.

    Powerful ending Strong story

    Reads less like a gossip biography and more like a fictional novel with amazing characters. It tells a vivid story rather than being pages of facts and dates and times. I enjoyed it.

    Although I'm only in my twenties, I have been a huge fan of Cary

    Although I'm only in my twenties, I have been a huge fan of Cary Grant's films for years. I have to admit I hadn't heard of Dyan Cannon until I saw that this book had come out, but after reading it I found that I could relate to her in the way that she thought and her sense of humor. It did make me see Cary Grant a little differently, but really it just goes to show that no one is perfect; we are all flawed human beings. As a resulting of reading this book I have also just recently purchased her daughter Jennifer's book, Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father, Cary Grant, and can't wait to read it.

    I bought this book as a Cary Grant fan and someone who has read

    I bought this book as a Cary Grant fan and someone who has read other books involving him and his life. This book far surpassed my expectations and I thoroughly enjoyed the story of this woman coming to terms with herself and life. I would recommend this for any Cary Grant fans as well as for those who just want to read an interesting story about how we grow into ourselves through life's experiences.

    More than a Hollywood tell-all

    I loved this book. I found so much more than I expected. Dyan's journey is fascinating. Although I was always enthralled with Cary Grant, I have to admit I no longer see him in quite the same way. I hope the best for this honest woman.

    Loving Cary

    I have always loved Cary Grant. I totally enjoyed this book because it gave a grand view of what living with Cary Grant was like. Even after some of the things that bothered me about his personal life...I am still in love with Cary Grant. GREAT READ!

    A very personal celebrity love story

    This is the first biography I've read in several years, but was not disappointing. Dyan Cannon did a great job writing this, it read like she was an accomplished author. In the beginning, Cary Grant was just as charming, polished and endearing as we have seen him portrayed on the screen. It was disturbing to see another side of him and the unraveling of his and Dyan's relationship. I would recommend it as an very interesting insight into the lifestyle of celebrities.

    A very good book from start to finish. I feel like I was there to see it all, due to Miss Cannon's vivid descriptions. On the subject of her and Cary, the book couldn't get any better, thusly the five stars.

    Great Read. Wonderful Love Story.

    I am enjoying this book very much. Two very remarkable people who had a deep love for each other, but they had numerous things to deal with. Hate for it to end. Dyan Cannon has a wonderful way of telling her story about a man she loved very much.

    A very readable autobiography

    So many biographies and auto biogrophies can be run of the mill and boring. This one told a story about an idol and his foibles. It also told a story about love and emotional abuse. So sad that a relationship filled with love can become so destuctive.
    This book was written with a lot of humor as it delved into dark places.

    what a great book !

    I loved this book & couldn't put it down. A real insight into the character & personality of this charismatic actor. I never thought much of anything about Dyan Cannon & it was good to read this from her perspective. It prompted me to watch a lot of her old movies & to try & figure out just what it was about her that appealed so much to him.

    He was a charming & very complicated person for sure.

    Good read

    What a fascinating insight into a unique Hollywood couple. I knew only a tip of the iceburg about both actors before reading this. When I saw this for sale I picked it up quickly because I thought what a fascinating relationship they probably had together.

    I learned so much about who they were as people rather than personas, Cannon really does a fine job of relating and gives you a glimpse of Cary Grant as the human rather than some Hollywood image. Her humor is relatable and funny as well. I've since picked up their daughter's book about her father which I'm also looking forward to reading.

    Cannon lived the life we all think we want -- the princess fairytale with Hollywood's most desirable man. But what she found out is that nothing is a fairytale and we shouldn't hold anything or anyone up to that standard.

    Everyone has their issues and not even Hollywood actors are perfect. This is a lesson we should take to heart about anything we try or think we should idolize. When we do so, we're setting them, and especially our ideals, up to fail.

    After reading this book I like both her and Cary Grant even more. I would recommend it.

    Didn't know this much about Cary Grant. I thought Dyan was sometimes over extended in her thoughts.

    If you like Cary & Dyan -- you need to read this book!

    To begin with, I liked the book very much. They were a very unmatched couple. They both were tortured souls. It's hard to believe this version of Mr. Grant...who didn't care for being Carry Grant the Star very much. I'm sorry for all the bullying and forcing Dyan to do things she didn't want to do and also for giving into him.
    I'm glad her parents and friends were there to help her.
    All in all, I loved their story.

    Dear dyan

    I think it is very convenient that dyan chose to write the book now when probably all of the people who could have refuted these allegations and her poison pen remarks are probably deceased as is Cary. I purchased tjis book believing it was either their love story or a biography on Mr. GRANT? Instead it was nothing but a cheap shot that continually slanders Cary and makes dyan out to be a virgin bride with no shame in bashing everyone but herself. The title is very misleading. He only married her because she got pregnant. Her timing is off throughout her own novel and her reference to the pillsbury doughboy who wasnt on tv until the seventies or eightied but she references him ad if he was in the sixties. Her timeline is all messed up. Should have been titled dear dyan as it was all about her anyway but that would not have sold books. I love how she says she is broke but grtting three grand for alimony and child support. Just one more actress living above her means. She chose to make everyone else look bad in order to make her look good. Very disappointed with this purchase and this author.
