Katharine Hepburn's life has had its share of celebrated triumphs and heartbreaking setbacks. Geoffrey Giuliano gives a clear account of Hepburn's life from her happy-go-lucky, unorthodox childhood to her rise as a shining star in theater and film, to her secretive love affair with the great Spencer Tracy, and her life post-Tracy. He earnestly describes the kind of person Hepburn was off-stage, within the center of her friends and family. A few exclusive interviews are included with her younger brother, Dr. Robert Hepburn; John Wayne's oldest son, Michael; and remarkably, Kate herself. Those closest to her reveal their respect and devotion, and Hepburn candidly provides rare personal commentary. This is a glorious tribute to a deserving icon. B.J.P.
