Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn By William J. Mann William J. Mann devotes significant attention to Katharine Hepburn's rocky relationships with studios and with the press, revealing that the self-styled renegade wasn't above collaborating to shape her public image, and depicts her final decline into alcoholism and depression with sensitivity.
