Huston, Allegra “Love Child”

Huston, Allegra “Love Child” - 2009

Allegra Huston is the daughter of director John Huston's second wife. When her mother dies in an accident, Allegra is only four years old, she gets introduced to her “father” John and is raised by him and various helpers. Her life is torn between the UK, Ireland, the US, Mexico and all her different “relations”, her father's new wives, lovers, her siblings from his various relationships. Then, one day she is introduced to her real father.

In her memoir she tries to recreate the mother she has never known and how she managed to become a normal person and live a normal life in between all those celebrities.

Very interesting account of a life few of us would like to lead.
