Art of the Book - Sophia Loren's "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow: My Life" (2014)

The cover to Sophia Loren’s new memoir features a classic vintage shot of the sultry star.

The Oscar-winning Italian's memoir "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" is published by Atria and available now.

The now 79-year-old Loren won an Academy Award for best actress for 1960’s Two Women and a lifetime achievement Oscar in 1991.

Atria publisher Judith Curr said the memoir offers “fans a glimpse of the woman who has left her mark on an era — from the challenges of growing up poor and hungry in wartime Italy to the flowering of her career and the joys of being a mother and grandmother.”

Each chapter of the book opens with a different memento — e.g. a sketch she made of Carlo Ponti, a letter from Cary Grant, portraits given to her by her grandchildren — to illuminate a part of her fascinating life story.
