Kate Remembered, A. Scott Berg
1 A. Scott Berg Kate Remembered
G.P. Putnam's Sons 242806 Australia 2003 0743206762 / 9780743206761 Hardcover Good Condition Good For more than twenty years, Katharine Hepburn imparted many of the details of her life to me suggesting that I weave them into a book - one that would appear upon her death. Sad to say, the time has come to publish that book. But I find comfort in knowing she lived a very rich 96 years; and I have tried my best to honour her wish of making the book as true to her spirit as possible - as inspiring, as loving and as fun.' Scott Berg KATE REMEMBERED is a loving tribute and a tender farewell that reveals an unusual relationship in a unique life, one fully lived - and 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 she felt should not be made public until after her death. Ultimately, this book is not only a story of the poignant final twenty years in which Scott Berg knew Katharine Hepburn, but also a tale of a great theatrical personality and the better part of the century that was the stage for her distinguished life. 370 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Biography; Biography & Autobiography; ISBN: 0743206762. ISBN/EAN: 9780743206761.

Pygmalion - A Romance In Five Acts, Bernard Shaw
4 Bernard Shaw Pygmalion - A Romance In Five Acts
Penguin Classics 226959 Great Britain 2003 Reprint 0141439505 / 9780141439501 Softcover Very Good Condition Definitive text under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence. Introduction by Nicholas Grene. George Bernard Shaw's witty comedy of manners, Pygmalion includes an introduction by Nicholas Grene in Penguin Classics. Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his 'creation' has a mind of her own. Adapted into the Oscar-winning musical film My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison in 1964, Pygmalion This is the definitive text produced under the editorial supervision of Dan H. Laurence, with an illuminating introduction by Nicholas Grene, discussing the language and politics of the play. Also included in this volume is Shaw's preface, as well as his 'sequel' written for the first publication in 1916, to rebut public demand for a more conventially romantic ending. 122 pages.

How To Hepburn: Lessons on Living from Kate The Great, Karen Karbo
6 Karen Karbo How To Hepburn: Lessons on Living from Kate The Great
JR Books 245142 Great Britain 2008 1906217475 / 9781906217471 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Katherine Hepburn was a born rabble-rouser who blazed into our consciousness with her distinct accent and love of trousers. She was a reluctant cultural revolutionary who handily redefined femininity, forced the world to ponder the meaning of marriage and gave generations of women fresh options for surviving middle age. But just how did she manage to be as unique as she was? How did she pull it off so well, and for so long? These are the questions that keep our Hepburn fascination alive. She was inimitable, and we want to be that way, too. Award-winning writer Karen Karbo shares this fascination and takes a hard look at the long, eventful life of the First Lady of Cinema to see what we can gleen from it. Part lifestyle guide, part biography, How to Hepburn is lively, laugh-out-loud funny, and filled with no-nonsense Hepburn-style advice on how to live life as Kate the Great did: on her own terms and according to her own rules. How did she - and how can we - Heburn? 193 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Biography; Biography & Autobiography; Film. ISBN/EAN: 9781906217471.

Holly Would Dream, Karen Quinn
7 Karen Quinn Holly Would Dream
Pocket Books 241470 Great Britain 2008 1416527656 / 9781416527657 Softcover Very Good Condition Fashion historian Holly Ross often wishes she lived in a simpler time when the clothes were beautiful, the men debonair and the endings happy. But, about to be married and with a big promotion promised, her life seems finally to resemble the movie stars she idolizes. So where did it all go wrong? How, in the space of one day, does Holly find herself homeless, jobless, penniless - and fiance-less? Why is she cruising the Mediterranean in pursuit of property tycoon Denis King? And how come she's trying to track down a suitcase full of stolen Audrey Hepburn gowns before Interpol tracks her down? The madcap adventures of the endearingly accident-prone Holly make for a fast-paced, feel-good and wickedly funny read. Will she get the promotion she deserves - or will she get thrown in jail? Will she capture the heart of Denis King before he marries society girl, Sydney Bass? And will she ever be able to stop saying 'if only' and accept herself for who she really is? 421 pages.

Their romance on and off screen made them Hollywood's most celebrated couple and together they produced some of the most electric scenes in movie history.

In a time of post war communism, Hollywood blacklisting and revolutionary politics she moved with the legends: Hemingway, the Oliviers, Katharine Hepburn, Bobby Kennedy, an engagement to Frank Sinatra and a second turbulent marriage to Jason Robards. Now at 80, BY MYSELF AND THEN SOME brings her story up to date including her recent films and Broadway runs, fond memories of her children and many close lifelong friendships, not least the greatest love of her life, Humphrey Bogart. 506 pages.

In April 2002 Penny bought a one-way ticket to Italy, where she knew no one and barely a word of the language, but was determined to create a new life.She picked up casual jobs and started learning Italian. Wrestling with complex sentences and thorny verbs, she followed her friends' advice that hooking up with an Italian stallion would boost her language skills. It definitely helped, but the fact that she happened to successively date two guys who were best mates in the same rock band didn't.Now juggling three jobs - writing for Corriere Della Sera and for a website and working in a wine bar - Penny has never earned so little money and she has never been happier. Rome has become her home.WHEN IN ROME shows what can happen if you are courageous and perhaps crazy enough, to trade in life as you know it to chase a dream on the other side of the world. 308 pages.

Howard Hughes: The Untold Story, Peter Harry Brown and Pat H. Broeske
12 Peter Harry Brown and Pat H. Broeske Howard Hughes: The Untold Story
Little, Brown and Company 242783 Great Britain 1996 0316909076 / 9780316909075 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good ince his death in 1976, Howard Hughes has been remembered primarily as an eccentric billionaire, compulsively secretive and strangely deluded. The grotesque details of his last years obscured the fact that he had once been America's "golden boy", a celebrated aviator and Hollywood legend who romanced hundreds of beautiful women, including many stars. This investigation seeks to shed new light on this eccentric figure, tracing the tycoon's tangle of relationships, his efforts to reshape Hollywood, his health problems and his increasingly erratic behaviour over the years. Among the revelations the book presents are details of Hughes's affairs with some of the most beautiful and talented actresses of the era, including Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, Olivia de Havilland, Lana Turner, Ava Gardner and Rita Hayworth. It also aims to reveal the truth about his participation in the Watergate scandal, and his mysterious death. Inscription to previous owner on front endpaper.
