Even so, while there's no doubt that Dear Cary is an absorbing read, it does leave you feeling like a prurient voyeur. At one point in the book, Grant says: "Real life is my own business". If only we could all leave it at that.

Reviewed by Vinton Rafe McCabe on Mar 26 2016

Without a trace of ghostly influence, Dyan Cannon has written a complex and captivating memoir, one that rings with the sound of her own unique voice as we have come to know it from films and television talk shows.
