Summary : Candice Bergen in Conversation with Harry Smith

Join beloved "Murphy Brown" star Candice Bergen as she recounts with wit and charisma the stories of her career, love and motherhood.

In her new memoir A Fine Romance, five time Emmy award, two Golden Globe winning and Oscar-nominated actress shares stories from her extraordinary life: her marriage to acclaimed French director Louis Malle, the birth of daughter Chloe, her hit show "Murphy Brown" and being pulled into the 1992 presidential campaign by Dan Quayle, widowhood, falling in love again and watching her daughter blossom. She is like the honest best friend everyone wants by the fireside.

A Fine Romance begins with Bergen’s charming first husband, French director Louis Malle, whose huge appetite for life broadened her horizons and whose occasional darkness never diminished their love for each other. But her real romance begins when she discovers overpowering love for her daughter Chloe after years of ambivalence about motherhood. As Chloe grows up, Bergen finds her comic genius in the biggest TV role of the 80s, "Murphy Brown." Fifteen years into their marriage, Malle is diagnosed with cancer, and Candice is unflinching in describing her and Chloe’s despair over his death. But after years of widowhood, she feels the sweet shock of finding a different kind of soulmate. Candice takes us through the first years of her new marriage and shares the bittersweetness of watching Chloe leave home and flourish. Always an exquisite beauty, she also shares the comedy of finally losing a battle against those damn wrinkles and extra pounds.
