Allegra Huston was the special guest on this show. She is the daughter of actor/director John Huston, sister of actress Anjelica Huston.
She is the author of the critically acclaimed “LOVE CHILD: A Memoir of Family Lost and Found,” published in the US and the UK in April 2009. At the heart of the book is Allegra's search for the adored mother she never knew - and for a sense of self in the web of secrets and awkward truths that made up her famous, fragmented family. Described by Salman Rushdie as “an exceptional telling of an extraordinary life,” and by Liz Smith as “a stunning and unusual memoir…simply a wonderful book – part mystery, part journey, part heartbreak,” it appeared on the bestseller lists of the San Francisco Chronicle and the Denver Post.
