Well written with great humor. Bergen spends time talking about growing up as the "sister" of Charlie McCarthy. As an only child, she longed for approval from her father and had a somewhat distant relationship with her mother. The book covers her childhood and high school years and includes her dropping out (being asked to leave) University of Pennsylvania. That was a disappointment to me as there are so many who would have loved to have had that opportunity and she just threw it away. Bergen tries to address her life of privilege and how things seem to just be handed to her.

Candice Bergen can do no wrong in my book. She has always been a class act. Terrifically talented throughout her long and varied career, with a unique style and beauty all her own. I just ordered a wonderful movie she starred in with Sean Connery many moons ago: I can't seem to find it at the moment...it is probably staring me in the face and if it could bite, I'd be ailing right now. It is a magnificent picture dealing with tribes in the Mideast when England ruled some of the territories there, and when Teddy Roosevelt was President in our wonderful United States of America. Get it!

I have read several memoirs of individual's whose careers have been in the limelight. Candice Bergen's Knock Wood contained the most intelligence and understanding of her everyday moments. It helped that she kept a diary to reference life events. What comes across clearly is how Candice possesses a mature assurance as a writer which she lacked as a budding newcomer, so the insights prove doubly revealing.

I did wonder if her father's passing prompted (on a subconscious level) Candice to invest more into her acting craft since she would not be riddled with guilt at eclipsing her father. Edgar Bergen entertained vast audiences in the vaudeville scene and eventually on a popular radio show as a ventriloquist using a puppet named Charlie. It is rich psychological fodder to consider the impact of being a ventriloquist had on Edgar and his family. Without a doubt, Candice and her father shared a special bond that emphasized the lack of quality men in her company.

I comprehend even more why the role of Murphy Brown (not discussed in the book) appealed to Candice. Both had journalist attributes, a steely exterior belying a lovely, compassionate person, crusader for causes, financially independent, and not made anxious by solitude.

It is almost befitting that I read this a few weeks prior to Father's Day. Candice spotlighted her father in the position of one who adored and loved the man. A mutual respect demonstrated through sparring may have been the immature way they interacted while Candice was a young woman, but in the end, honest communication was introduced. It healed. Family relationships are rarely turbulent free. It is more a matter of adapting and finding what each person needs as you and the world change.
JUST DO IT
I read a lot of show biz biographies. Many of them really fail to scratch the surface of the person at issue. Bergen's autobiography( through her 34th birthday) is not one of those. She write beautifully. She is intelligent. And she is honest about the people she meets and surrounds herself with. Most important, she is refreshingly honest about herself. Add all these things up and you have one of the best Hollywood stories, ever.

I read it after reading "A Fine Romance" which helped me connect the dots regarding Candice's upbringing and life. This was a great tribute to her famous and enigmatic father, the quintessential ventriloquist, Edgar Bergen. It was an excellent memoir which reflected on what the USA was going through during the 50's, 60"s and 70's. Her love of family and friends made me love her even more as a person.

I was somewhat disappointed with this book - Edgar Bergen/Charlie McCarthy were always interesting to me, as a child, but was rather disappointed in knowing how quiet and reserved he was in private life. But obviously he did love his family and his daughter, but no one was able to show or say it.

Regardless, Candice did finally - I think - get to live a life that she enjoyed, and that was a positive situation.

Excellent retelling of her childhood and growing up as Charlie McCarthy's sister! Ms. Bergen spent her young life desiring the love of her father Edgar Bergen who she described as a cold Swede. Her mother was young and devoted to her husband so she didn't have much time to give her daughter the love she so desired. Ms. Bergen is a fine writer and the bio moves quickly.
Candace is a good writer with a good sense of humor. I will probably read her other books.
