But I learned much more about Katharine Hepburn than I ever hoped to know, and it's made watching "The Lion in Winter" even more epic. When I "write" the story of my life, I will also title it ME. This was a gem of a good/bad book

But I learned much more about Katharine Hepburn than I ever hoped to know, and it's made watching "The Lion in Winter" even more epic. Also, it's provided me with several new catchphrases. This was a gem of a good/bad book. Chuckle worthy Passages: Oh, I meant to tell you. I was standing on my head the other day and I got to thinking how probably unusual it is for someone of my age to do this.

Me is an unforgettable portrait of Katharine Hepburn as we have not seen her before.

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.

This book is just like Katharine Hepburn herself. Uniquely funny, unconventional, different and beautiful. I found the last three chapters to be especially the one simply titled 'Love', about her unique relationship with Spencer Tracy. Any fan of Hepburn, or of Hollywood's golden era must read this book.

Admired and beloved by movie audiences for over sixty years, four-time Academy Award-winner Katharine Hepburn is an American classic. Now Miss Hepburn breaks her long-kept silence about her private life in this absorbing and provocative memoir.A NEW YORK TIMES Notable Book of the YearA Book-of-the-Month-Club Main SelectionFrom the Paperback edition.
I agree with the other 1-star reviews. Disjointed, jumbled and written without much thought or insight (in my opinion). I loved her movies but of course, that doesn't mean her writing will be any good. And it simply wasn't. I've bought dozens and dozens of books over the last few years and I've never left a review like this but this book was honestly boring and poorly conceived.
Love her acting, but I do believe this to be the most boring book I've ever read - and I'm an avid reader. Nothing more to say except the price: neighborhood of $13.00 is, in retrospect, infuriating. The phrase that comes to mind is "How dare they!"
Katherine Hepburn was (at least for our generation and our parent's) one of the iconic actresses, one of the greats. She had her own style, popularlizing wearing pants, for example, had a scandalous (at that time) long-term relationship with the married Spencer Tracy and made some classic and great films. (My fave happens to be "Lion in Winter. But of course, there are so many better ones.)

This autobiography is episodic and a bit like listening to her abrupt and pointed style of talking. What's interesting especially is reading about her family. There were tragedies, a lot fun, too. She was athletic and strong, a trait that stood her in good stead for a long, productive life. She was always opinionated and headstrong, and for a long time, box-office poison due to a notable film failure. She covers this failure with a good, clear-eyed look at what went wrong.

If you love classic film, and the great actresses like Bette Davis, Vanessa Redgrave and Hepburn, you'll enjoy reading this bio.

I've always loved Katharine Hepburn. In movies and in watching her give the few interviews she's done. In reading this book, I heard her voice speaking throughout. If you are expecting a book written like any other autobiography, you will be disappointed. This book is written as if you are sitting there having a long conversation with a friend about their life. It's jumbled and skips around a lot, but you get the gist of the story she's telling you. Some of the chapters were a bit boring, but then it would pick up again. The most touching story for me was her chapter on Spencer. Thank you Katharine for sharing a piece of your life with us.
I’m a fan of Katharine Hepburn. This book reads just like she’s talking to you and telling you stories from her life. She had very progressive parents and was raised to be independent, strong, athletic and fearless. She went after what she wanted and had great luck. At times she comes off as selfish which she readily admits. There are some tragedies. She’s made mistakes and has a few regrets, but she’s had a fascinating life. She’s had some interesting relationships including Howard Hughes and Spencer Tracy and talks about many of her movies. I enjoy the backstories of movie making and people I admire. I enjoyed this book.~
Very different type of writing - probably more like the way she spoke. You can feel how her Hollywood era came through. She saved her life with Spencer Tracy until the end of the book. I wasn't much interested in who directed what, and how they selected various actors, but you get the feel for how independent she was and how she was in charge of many of her pictures. She admits to being self-centered. She was vague about her various relationships, which was typical of her time to not discuss too much. I could feel some of her pain when she talked of Spencer's death and how his wife thought their relationship was a 'rumor.' It was an interesting read.
"Me" is exactly what it sound like. This is a very honest and open look at the background behind the Katharine Hepburn we came to love in the movies. The reader is allowed to follow along as she grows up with her very forward looking (for the time period) family. I would have loved to be a neighbor and have access to the Hepburn home. I am not sure I would have wanted to go home at the end of the day. If you are looking for a good book, on any day of the year, be sure to add this one to your collection. The pictures that are scattered throughout the book really give you a great idea about Katharine's family and the houses they lived in. Thank you Katharine for allowing us this glimpse behind the curtain. I know I will enjoy your performances even more now that I know more about you as a human being.
Katharine Hepburn was a great actress, but that does not translate to being a great (or even good) writer. This is "stream of consciousness" stuff, put together in sentence fragments and no sense of timeline. I do understand how difficult it can be for a non-writer to put together their memoirs, but I found myself skimming large sections just see if I would find anything interesting. She also gives very few details about some of the parts of her life that have people wondering the most. For instance, she says precious little about her relationship to Spencer Tracy, except to note that he was an exceptional actor and they loved each other. I think we all knew that. The best part of the book was the pictures.
