About the Author:

Nancy Nelson at first persuaded Cary Grant to make public appearances and then represented and accompanied him and his wife for his superb one-man show called A Conversation with Cary Grant. Through those evenings and in many more private conversations, she produced this unique book. She is president of the Nelson Agency.

A KIND AND GENTLE BIOGRAPHY . . . shows the private man who doted on his daughter, lamented his failed marriages and could be as contemplative as he was comic.” —Baltimore Sun
