Riassunto: "I read In The Wings with great fascination. I learned things about myself that I never knew and things about Michael that he never told me. It's an intriguing, well-written book. She will be hearing from my lawyers soon." -Kirk Douglas
"Diana Douglas's In The Wings is the most staggeringly beautiful biography I have ever read. It is overwhelmingly honest, heartbreaking. I laughed, I wept-it is simply extraordinary." -Patricia Neal
If opposites attract, there were few attractions stronger than the one between Diana Dill and Kirk Douglas. Both were students at New York's Academy of the Dramatic Arts, and an affinity quickly developed. Their marriage was a storybook union-but after Kirk's emergence as a major star with the film version of Champion, their lives went in different directions, leading to their separation and eventual divorce.
Sometime later, while continuing her acting career, Diana met the great love of her life. Actor, producer, and successful novelist Bill Darrid was exactly the right man for her after the mercurial Douglas. The two remained happily married for some thirty-seven years until his death in 1992.
In The Wings is Diana's answer to her son Michael's request for her personal memoir for his son Cameron. It recounts her long and lively life, with all the blemishes included. Now, having finished a new film and entering a new marriage at a time of life when she expected to be comfortably retired, Diana offers her personal philosophy to her grandson: "Be courageous, be compassionate, and, for God's sake, have fun!"
L'autore: Diana Douglas resides in California.
