About this Item

256 p. Illustrations. Filmography. From slum urchin of Pozzuoli to reigning queen of the cinema world, here is Sophia Loren's richly personal story-an introspective, candid account of her illegitimacy and poverty, how she overcame the ravages of war, the rebuffs of Rome's movie people, the fury of the Catholic Church, and crim-inal prosecution for adultery and public sinning. There was agony, too, in the choice of a husband between Cary Grant and Carlo Ponti. Her incredible fight to have a child was frustrated by miscarriages and enormous physical and emotional suffering. Sophia Loren has made seventy films, with their accompanying triumphs and tribulations. A. E. Hotchner, who wrote Doris Day: Her Own Story and before that Papa Hemingwayy-both huge best sellers-has again brought a special quality to Sophia: Living and Loving that will make it unique among the personal books of the coming season. This is Sophia, telling you not just what she wants you to know, but every thing-turning herself inside out and filling the pages with the pain, sorrow, joys, wisdoms, frustrations, and dreams which have constituted her life. After Hotchner had finished his four months of daily interviews, she said, "My God, I feel like I've been through analysis. " In effect, that is what happened. And this book-Sophia: Living and Loving~is the triumphant result. Very good in very good dust jacket. Signed by Sophia Loren. First edition. Stated. First printing [stated].
