Dear Cary: My Life with Cary Grant

Dear Cary: My Life with Cary Grant - Dyan Cannon

I honestly don't recall having ever seen Dyan Cannon act in anything, so I can't speak to her talent there, but a great writer, she is not. However, I still found myself fascinated by this book because a) I think it's authentic to Cannon's experience, and b) I love Cary Grant, and reading about a portion of his personal life was fascinating. Sadly, though, fascinating doesn't always equate to wonderful or uplifting. I came away wishing I hadn't read a lot of it, and just feeling sad for everyone involved. I think I'd prefer to go back to not knowing about some of it. I have to give Cannon full credit for her attempt to be fair to Grant, rather than biased or unkind, but it left a bad taste in my mouth just the same.
