NEW YORK TIMES Notable Book of the Year 

“In her book about her life, Miss Hepburn insists that that woman in the movies was not her at all. ‘I’m not going to hide behind you anymore,’ she says. ‘Who are you anyway? You're not me.’ Sure she is. The woman in the book is cocky, fearless, smart, capable, and human, on screen and off.”—Anna Quindlen, The New York Times

Admired and beloved by movie audiences for more than sixty years, four-time Academy Award winner Katharine Hepburn is an American classic and an extraordinary, enduring presence on the international cultural scene. Yet her private life has been obscured by mystery. Now Miss Hepburn breaks her long-kept silence in this absorbing and provocative memoir.

With characteristic gusto and candor, Katharine Hepburn reflects on the events, people, and places that have shaped her life—her childhood and family, her early days in New York, and her experiences with political activism. She talks about the ups and downs of her career, her long friendship with Spencer Tracy, and of course, her close collaborations with several of the leading actors, directors, and producers of the past half century. Me is an unforgettable portrait of Katharine Hepburn as we have not seen her before.

“It is the understanding heart revealed just before the final curtain that makes us fall in love with Katharine Hepburn.”—The New York Times Book Review

Recenzja użytkownika  - nancynova - LibraryThing

rabck from dvg; autobiography of Katharine Hepburn. An unconventional actress, the chapters are different chains of thought about her life and career. I knew about Spencer Tracy, but never realized that she had been married and that she had been involved with Howard Hughes also. Przeczytaj pełną recenzję

The books is a great read, because Hepburn is amusing although not very revealing. But I highly recommend the audio, read by Hepburn. Even better. Przeczytaj pełną recenzję
