I read the autobiography and felt it lacked a considerable amount. This book helped to fill in the blanks. Good reading and recommended to all interested in the real Kate Hepburn.

It can't have been easy to make the life of Katherine Hepburn boring but Charlotte Chandler certainly achieved it!

Haven't read any of her other bios and based on this one would certainly not bother.

There is no actress I admire more than Katharine Hepburn, an astonishing personality as well as a great performer. For almost all her life she cherished her privacy; yet she appears to have opened up to Charlotte Chandler to a truly mind-blowing degree. Chandler quotes her word for word (at least, that's what she appears to be doing) in most cases, with the result that the reader has the impression of being - almost - there in the room, listening to that wonderful voice: I found myself "hearing" her in my head as I progressed through the book. A much-needed corrective to Barbara Leaming's awful biography of some years ago; if you care about Hepburn, worth every penny.

After acclaimed, intimate studies of Mae West, Joan Crawford, Ingrid Bergman, Bette Davis, Hitchcock and Wilder, Chandler's Personal Biography series continues with yet another rich subject: Katharine Hepburn. Based on a series of recordings made over many years, Chandler tells her extraordinary story, from her teenage brother's suicide, through her unprecedented Hollywood career (including four Academy Awards) in such films as The Philadelphia Story and The African Queen, to her battle with Parkinson's disease. Written primarily in Kate's own words, her inimitable voice can be heard throughout.
