This memoir is both a tribute and a tender farewell, revealing an unusual relationship in a notable life lived largely according to Katharine Hepburn's own rules. More importantly, it sets down many of the stories of that life as she saw them, full of sentiments that she felt should not be made public until after her death. This book not only traces the poignant final 20 years during which Berg knew Hepburn - at her townhouse in NYC, swimming in Long Island Sound and on weekend visits with family and friends - but also the better part of the 20th century that was the stage for this great theatrical personality. It records previously untold details of her career; her four Oscars and twelve Oscar nominations; and her starring roles in such films as The Philadelphia Story, The African Queen, Guess Who's Coming To Dinner and On Golden Pond. It also includes famous relationships with men such as Spencer Tracy and Howard Hughes.
