    For seven decades Katharine Hepburn played a leading role in the popular culture of the 20th century, reigning as an admired actress, a beloved movie star, and a treasured icon of the modern American woman. She also remained one of the most private of all the public figures of her time.

    Chris says: "Worth a listen"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this well written book. A. Scott Berg interjects the story of Katharine Hepburn's life and career with anecdotes of his own personal friendship with the legendary actress, giving the book a wonderful balance.

  • When You Are Engulfed in Flames

    Story
    (1431)

    Once again, David Sedaris brings together a collection of essays so uproariously funny and profoundly moving that his legions of fans will fall for him all over again. He tests the limits of love when Hugh lances a boil from his backside, and pushes the boundaries of laziness when, finding the water shut off in his house in Normandy, he looks to the water in a vase of fresh cut flowers to fill the coffee machine.

    Overall

    Thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end.

  • Mr. Playboy: Hugh Hefner and the American Dream

    Story
    (11)

    When Hugh Hefner quit his job at Esquire to start a magazine called Playboy, he didn't just want to make money, he wanted to make dreams come true. In this wise and penetrating biography, intellectual historian Steven Watts looks at what Hugh Hefner went on to become and how he took America with him. Hefner became one of the most hated and envied celebrities in America, standing just barely on the wrong side of decency - with as many as seven million subscribers to his magazine.

    Glenda Fuller says: "Great book but a little long"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    The last thing I expected of a story about Hugh Hefner was that it would be boring, yet this author spends so much time on cultural influences that it's more like a textbook than an engaging life story.
