Summary
This book is about Candice Bergen's real and extraordinary life: her ambivalence about having that baby, and the ferocity of the love she develops for her daughter, Chloe. It is also about her marriage to the charming French director Louis Malle, who wrote her love letters that would make womankind weep, whose huge appetite for life enveloped her and whose occasional darkness and frenzied creativity never really diminished their love for each other. It is about her relationship with the French haute bourgeoisie, into whose circle she married, and how she dealt with their pretensions by, well, once farting under her ballgown. It is about the joy of discovering her comic genius in middle age in the most famous TV role of the 80s, Murphy Brown, and about how the character helped her find herself as much as she helped define the character. It is about the pranks on the set, and the problem of getting all the limelight in an ensemble cast. It is about turning your home into an animal menagerie. When she talks about Louis being diagnosed with cancer, the book is about the anger at your husband for dying, but then the miracle of falling in love again after years of widowhood and the shock of recognition at finding a different kind of soulmate, the kind who won't let you off the hook emotionally. The book is about the first year of that new marriage and learning how to accept a different and sometimes oppressive kind of devotion, and learning how to give the right kind of love back. It is about the pain of watching a daughter leave home, the joy of realizing how smart and beautiful she is, the terror of those first intimations of mortality, the pleasure of comrades on stage and off. Oh, and it's also about gaining those god-damn extra pounds
