In that inimitable Hepburn voice--witty, intelligent, candid, immediate--she tells us the stories of her life ("And when I say stories I'm afraid I mean flashes--this--that--no no the other thing") and takes us back to her childhood, into her family life...to her early days in New York and Hollywood...through the ups and downs of her career...into the sanctuaries of her private life...through her long friendship with Spencer Tracy...into her close collaboration with many of the leading actors, directors and producers of the past sixty years... Throwing aside her performing personality ("that creature"), she reveals the person behind the persona in a vivid, unforgettable self-portrait: Katharine Hepburn as we have never seen her before.. First Edition 10th Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
