Back cover copy

Cary Grant was the ultimate star, defining Hollywood glamour as well as cinematic achievement. Dyan Cannon was a bright new actress, beautiful and funny. So began a storybook romance that brought her to dizzying heights and the inner circles of power in which Cary Grant was king.

Behind closed doors, she discovered a Cary no one knew. A caring and private person, with dark family secrets that weighed heavily upon 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, though, proved elusive, and their relationship was beset with tragic twists and turns.

With rare photos and never-before-seen letters from Grant, Dear Cary is told with poignancy and hard-won wisdom.
