Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Beloved actress Hepburn's episodic autobiography spent 24 weeks on PW 's hardcover bestseller list and was a BOMC main selection in cloth. (Aug.)
School Library Journal
YA-- Katherine Hepburn is, at 84, still the positive, feisty, upper-class lady she portrayed in The Philadelphia Story . Her autobiography, clearly not ghostwritten, tells some stories of her life but not all--she comes from a class that didn't let it all hang out. Her 27-year affair with Spencer Tracy is discussed with fond memories (the years together were to her ``absolute bliss'')--the idea that it was scandalous at the time doesn't seem to cross her mind, and she is surprised to find that Tracy's wife thought the affair was only a rumor. She seems to remember almost everyone fondly--her wonderful parents; her loving, supportive husband, whom she admits she treated badly; the numerous beaus, directors, and fellow actors with whom she worked. More than 160 black-and-white photos lend credibility to her enduring beauty, but it's the somewhat breathless, positive prose that makes Hepburn come alive as herself or as she wishes to be seen--an uncomplaining, stalwart, lucky, admired, and ``classy'' lady. --Diana C. Hirsch, Prince George's County Memorial Library System, MD

    Forthright and honest

    'Kit! Kathy is in the top of the hemlock! 'Yes, I know. Don't scare her. She doesn't know that it's dangerous.' That exchange between a concerned neighbor and a small girl's mother offers a telling glimpse into the childhood Katharine Hepburn's parents gave her. Being adventurous - physically as well as intellectually - was simply expected. No one should pick this book up expecting a conventionally structured, conventionally worded autobiography. Miss Hepburn tells her life's stories as if her readers were sitting down for a visit. She moves through her long life in approximately linear fashion, but she never sticks to a timeline when doing that would keep her thoughts from flowing freely. She's frank without being vulgar, and she describes her own behavior - including those times when it was less than admirable - in forthright, honest terms. An interesting look into the mind and heart of one very interesting person.

    Wonderful

    A wonderful, very entertaining look at the life of the greatest actress to ever live. She was a very strong, independent woman with such class. There will never be another like Katherine. This book is a must read.

    Typical star auto curios that someone with stagefright

    Managed. However in another bio. this extended to crowds and was difficult for her to attend performances in theaters or go to large busy reastaurants and would be physically ill if she couldnt leave quickly this is similar to greta garbo's a movie is quite different from stage in that there is no audience to please or even any order in performance

    What is wrong here?

    What is so special about a woman who for years was a thorn in the side of another while she carried on a love affair with the woman's husband?!

    Recommended

    I am recommending this but I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I wanted more of her personality and didn't feel that. Somehow her humor didn't come through in the book. Sad because she was a very interesting woman.
