One of the great stars of Hollywood allows herself to be interviewed by a biographer for the first time. Growing up in a family shadowed by suicide and madness, Katherine Hepburn was unaware of her family's tragic history until it erupted before her eyes: at the age of thirteen she found her brother Tom hanging dead in an attic. But the death - and the history that might have explained it - was never discussed again, leaving Kate with unresolved questions that shaped her life for over seventy years. Barbara Leaming has had unprecedented access to letters by Hepburn, her friends and family, and has interviewed Hepburn herself to produce a comprehensive, and totally compelling, biography of one of Hollywood's greatest stars.
