Présentation de l'éditeur

A must-read for first wives everywhere!

“A marriage may be able to survive extra-marital sex, but extra-marital love is a shipwreck from which most marriages never recover. Our marriage did not.” — Harriett Bronson

Born in Philadelphia, HARRIETT BRONSON went to drama school to ful ll her dream of going on the New York stage. Instead, she met and married a fellow acting student (known today as Charles Bronson) and followed him to California. After sixteen years, two children and a high-pro le divorce, Harriett again found herself looking for a career. She tried acting, modeling and a list of other pursuits until serendipity intervened and she ended up as a radio talk show host, loved it, and spent the next nine years doing it—on both KABC and KIEV in Los Angeles. Specializing in interviewing non-celebrities who are doing interesting things, she caught on. One reviewer dubbed her husky “purr” as the “best voice on late night radio.” Today, she still loves drawing people out in conversations. “It’s in the blood,” she says.

- A behind-the-scenes look at a high profile Hollywood marriage and divorce

- Never-before-seen photographs from the Bronson Family Album

- Insights into what it feels like to be an ex “Mrs. Famous”

5.0 étoiles sur 5 CHARLIE AND ME by Harriett Bronson, le 28 janvier 2011 29 janvier 2011
Dans son livre, Charlie & Me, raconte Harriett Bronson les plaisirs et les peines d'un mariage
avec un vedette de cinéma. En même temps examine-t-elle la difficulté d'une femme à trouver
le juste milieu entre son dévouement à son mari et l'attention à ses besoins à elle.

Comme jeune fille rêvait Harriet à devenir actrice célèbre, mais à 18 ans s'est-elle mariée
avec Charles Bronson, un jeune acteur sans ressources, et c'était lui (pas Harriett) qui a réalisé
son rêve à lui. Seulement 16 ans plus tard, quand le couple s'était divorcé, s'était-elle rendu compte
de ses sacrifices dans l'intérêt de son époux, et il lui a fallu plusieurs ans pour retrouver sa voie.
Enfin, cependant, a-t-elle trouvé non seulement un but dans sa vie mais en même temps sa célébrité
à elle.

Cette histoire du courage et de la persévérance de Harriett Bronson servira comme un modèle et
une inspiration à des femmes qui se trouvent en circonstances semblables :

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must-read for film buffs and first wives! 27 novembre 2010
A Hollywood memoir by the first wife of actor Charles Bronson which details their 16-year marriage and high profile divorce; the author's life afterwards as the "ex" Mrs. Famous; and her successful struggle to reinvent herself as a talk radio host. The book also gives an in-depth look at Bronson's incredible journey from Pennsylvania coal miner to Hollywood royalty. CHARLIE & ME is about old Hollywood; about the basic ingredients of success (such as "show up on time and be prepared"); and about the impact of international fame and fortune on a marriage. CHARLIE & ME is a true love tale gone wrong. There is no story like this story.

Harriett Bronson's book "Charlie & Me" tells about Charles Bronson's rise to fame. Far from meteoric, the late actor struggled for years, slowly building his career with the help and support of Harriett.

She serves up a compassionate, realistic look at the best and the worst of Charles Bronson's path to fame, and how the married couple travelled it together until they no longer could. It's a story only Harriett can tell - and finally she has.

Besides the great writing, Harriett's memoir includes photographs of Charles before he came to Hollywood, when he worked as a coal miner and then as a World War II tail gunner. Numerous other photos document the couple's life together from their first date to their last public dinner together as a married couple.

Rather than being at arm's length as in most paparazzi/tabloid accounts, Harriett includes the reader in how it felt from the inside of a dream that finally came true - only for her to lose the Charles Bronson she fell in love with to Charles Bronson, the star.

A wonderfully transformational tale, Charlie & Me is a truly inspiring account of turning lost love for another into loving yourself and reconnecting with your own dream - and achieving it.

Great job, Harriett!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cinema Retro Review 2 février 2011
Part of Charles Bronson's success was his reluctance to go public with his private life. It seems hard to believe in the era of Charlie Sheen that there once was an era in which celebrities valued their privacy and dignity. Bronson overcame a predestined fate to follow his family members in working in the mines of Pennsylvania. Through quiet, but hard-nosed determination, he gained a foothold in Hollywood and became a reliable supporting actor before his unlikely emergence as one of the world's most bankable leading men. Even at the height of his fame and popularity, Bronson's fans knew little about his personal life beyond the prerequisite studio-issued biographies. He rarely attended Hollywood functions, almost never promoted his films and only fleetingly gave interviews. I once asked Michael Winner, the director with whom he had some great successes, if he could say he really knew Bronson and the answer was a resounding "No."

There were reasons for Bronson's reluctance to open up his personal life and some of them revolved around his messy marital problems and affairs. These are painfully recounted in Charlie and Me, a memoir by his first wife Harriett. In the early years of their courtship, she found Bronson to be attentive and thoughtful, even if he harbored a lifelong insecurity about the women in his life that made him obsessively jealous. Harriett Bronson's book is a true page-turner, as it gives a different perspective from what little has been relayed to date about his personality. Harriett Bronson's story is the same as so many Hollywood wives: they stuck with their husband during the lean years and when success finally came, they were unceremoniously dumped for another woman.
