Product Overview

? Inside a legendary American family: Allegra Huston was the third child of John Huston?s fourth wife, the beautiful ballet dancer Ricki Soma. In this graceful, penetrating memoir, Allegra takes us into the world of a child unmoored by her mother?s sudden death and sent on an odyssey which took her from John Huston?s fabulous estate in Ireland, to the American suburbs, to a hidden paradise in Mexico?and, at the side of her older sister Anjelica, into the hilltop retreats of Jack Nicholson, Ryan O?Neal, and Marlon Brando. Allegra paints a vivid, caring, and affecting portrait of her parents and the luminous circle of friends, acquaintances, lovers, and artists who were a part of family life. .

? A revelatory twist and family connection: At the age of twelve Allegra Huston discovered her biological father to be the British aristocrat and historian John Julius Norwich. Suffused with a quiet intensity of emotion, Love Child explores family secrets and family bonds, and the unreliable certainties of memory?and ends with an unexpected triumph..
