A NEW YORK TIMES Notable Book of the Year

“In her book about her life, Miss Hepburn insists that that woman in the movies was not her at all. ‘I’m not going to hide behind you anymore,’ she says. ‘Who are you anyway? You’re not me.’ Sure she is. The woman in the book is cocky, fearless, smart, capable, and human, on screen and off.”—Anna Quindlen, The New York Times

Admired and beloved by movie audiences for more than sixty years, four-time Academy Award winner Katharine Hepburn is an American classic and an extraordinary, enduring presence on the international cultural scene. Yet her private life has been obscured by mystery. Now Miss Hepburn breaks her long-kept silence in this absorbing and provocative memoir.

With characteristic gusto and candor, Katharine Hepburn reflects on the events, people, and places that have shaped her life—her childhood and family, her early days in New York, and her experiences with political activism. She talks about the ups and downs of her career, her long friendship with Spencer Tracy, and of course, her close collaborations with several of the leading actors, directors, and producers of the past half century. 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.”—The New York Times Book Review

From School Library Journal
YA– Katherine Hepburn is, at 84, still the positive, feisty, upper-class lady she portrayed in The Philadelphia Story . Her autobiography, clearly not ghostwritten, tells some stories of her life but not all–she comes from a class that didn’t let it all hang out. Her 27-year affair with Spencer Tracy is discussed with fond memories (the years together were to her “absolute bliss”)–the idea that it was scandalous at the time doesn’t seem to cross her mind, and she is surprised to find that Tracy’s wife thought the affair was only a rumor. She seems to remember almost everyone fondly–her wonderful parents; her loving, supportive husband, whom she admits she treated badly; the numerous beaus, directors, and fellow actors with whom she worked. More than 160 black-and-white photos lend credibility to her enduring beauty, but it’s the somewhat breathless, positive prose that makes Hepburn come alive as herself or as she wishes to be seen–an uncomplaining, stalwart, lucky, admired, and “classy” lady. –Diana C. Hirsch, Prince George’s County Memorial Library System, MD
