A Fine Romance by Candice Bergen
Review by Susan Williams
In this, her second memoir, Candice Bergen shares experiences from about the age of 34. This includes details of her marriage to the French director, Louis Malle, which ended in his untimely death. She also shares intimate anecdotes of her award-winning TV show, Murphy Brown and the birth of her daughter Chloe. Finally she describes her marriage to billionaire Marshall Rose, to whom she’s been married since 2000. A Fine Romance is a tender look at the great loves of Bergen’s life, first and foremost, that of her daughter.
Bergen writes with candor, intelligence, and wit. I found this memoir to be a very refreshing read that I would recommend for anyone who likes autobiographies of smart, funny women. As a long-time admirer of Ms. Bergen’s acting, I really enjoyed reading her memoir.
A Fine Romance is the follow-up to her bestselling Knock Wood.
