Harriett Bronson, who signs and presents her new book Charlie & Me (Timberlake Press), isn't writing about the Viet Cong or the faceless boss of three Angels. She's writing about her life with husband Charles Bronson, the action-adventure star who appeared in more than 100 films and TV shows from 1944 to 1999. In her book, Madame Bronson — nee Harriett Tendler — reveals what went on during their marriage, which lasted from 1949 to 1967. After their breakup, she had to build a life again, finding a home for herself and her two children in Los Angeles and unexpectedly following a new creative outlet as a broadcaster on KABC and KIEV for nine years, interviewing men in the street. “The only things in life that are permanent are memories,” she says — past warmth and brilliance of dead stars notwithstanding.
