From "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" to Cary & Divorce & Breakdown & Ally, Dyan Cannon Pens Memoir

NEW YORK--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--March 22, 1999--Everyone from Jaqueline Onassis to superagent Swifty Lazar has tried to acquire Dyan Cannon's story, but she hasn't been ready to talk until now. Finally, the Oscar-nominated actress from ``Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice'' and ``Heaven Can Wait'' will reveal her turbulent and inspirational journey in NO MORE IDOLS, to be published by HarperEntertainment in February 2000.

With searing candor and irresistible intimacy and her trademark sense of humor, Dyan Cannon will trace the ups and downs of her life as one of Hollywood's sexiest, wackiest, most unpredictable and likable stars. For the first time, she will discuss the details of her marriage and divorce to screen legend Cary Grant. Cannon's riveting personal story also includes a nervous breakdown, a stint in a mental ward, and a tumultuous search for salvation that saw her experiment with numerous trendy salves for injured souls. Left emotionally, spiritually, and financially broke but not broken, Cannon goes on to describe how she slowly reclaimed her dignity and forged a relationship with God, transforming herself into the confident and fulfilled person she is today, beloved by a new generation who watch her play Judge Whipper on ``Ally McBeal.''

NO MORE IDOLS will be written by Dyan Cannon with Todd Gold, an award-winning journalist and bestselling co-author of nineteen books, including Little Girl Lost with Drew Barrymore, My Life with Ann-Margret, and The Beat Goes On with Sonny Bono. Gold is a former Los Angeles bureau chief of People magazine.

``Dyan's story is filled with passion, inspiration, and unexpected details,'' said Mauro Di Preta, Executive Editor at HarperEntertainment. ``It will surprise people who think they know her.''
