Very interesting. Came to understand a lot about her personality/character--very proud, frank, selfish, but now admits it, so I admire her for that. Has some good insight into Hollywood then and her life, and people she met. Great actress ( )
One thing I can say about Katharine Hepburn: she clearly didn't employ a ghost writer for her memoirs. For better or worse, Me: Stories of My Life is written in her voice: brisk, disarming, high-handed, New-England-patrician, with prose that veers off into sentence fragments at times. I have to imagine that some of the incidents she recounts here came across much better when told in person, with voices and body language over the dinner table, than they do in print—the whole section about going with a guy to pick up a car in Italy, told inexplicably in script format, fell very flat. But when Hepburn's style works, it works very well, as when she recounts the circumstances of her beloved older brother's death by suicide, something which clearly hurt and bewildered her so many decades later.
Lavishly illustrated with candid photos and snapshots taken on the sets of Hepburn's films; also includes a Welsh currant cake recipe and the fact that Hepburn's vocabulary included the phrase "tough titty."
A great opportunity to learn more intimate sides of a women who lived feminism before it was societal trend.
She said it was a group of stories and that's what it was. It is better listening than reading from what I've read in the reviews. The abridged version is the way to go unless you don't care about cohesiveness. It's just like if every day you took a recording of your elderly loved one telling a story and threw all those stories into a book without rhyme or reason.
I'm still glad I read it because my mom is from that era and worked at Western Union and often handled telegrams between Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. It's time for me to get her up and give her morning pills and breakfast pills. Yesterday she asked me if she was my daughter.
