I feel slightly guilty admitting that I paid a ridiculous 50c for this in a charity shop but I am going to buy a few more books by this biographer so it all works out fair and square in the end.

Didn't know that much about her life before reading this book. Helped me a lot. I admired her for her acting, now I admire Katharine Hepburn for the person she was. I loved the book, it showed me surprising and intimate things about her and her family.
