Sophia Loren to write memoir due in December

NEW YORK (AP) — Sophia Loren is finally telling the story of her life.

And what a story.

The Oscar-winning Italian actress has a deal with Atria Books for the memoir, "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow: My Life as a Fairy Tale." The publisher announced Thursday that the book is scheduled for Dec. 2. The 79-year-old Loren is expected to write about her rise from poverty during World War II to international stardom, sharing her thoughts on Cary Grant, Richard Burton and her husband, Carlo Ponti, among others.

Loren's movies include "Marriage Italian Style," ''Houseboat" and "Two Women," for which she won an Academy Award in 1961.
