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.

Efraim's Book, Alfred Andersch

King Penguin 226288 USA 1984 0140046216 / 9780140046212 Softcover Good Condition Efraim's Book is the sophisticated, offbeat novel about the peculiar society of post-World-II Berlin. Its hero George Efraim is a Jewish reporter who has fought for the British on the Italian front and lost both parents to Auschwitz.

Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman, Alice Steinbach
12 Alice Steinbach Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman
Bantam Books 238179 Australia 2000 1863253769 / 9781863253765 Softcover Very Good Condition Without Reservations is about a woman's dream come true - taking a year off to travel the world and rediscover what it is like to be an independent woman, without ties and without reservations. 'In many ways, I was an independent woman,' writes Alice Steinbach, single working mother and Pulitzer prize-winnning journalist. 'For years I'd made my own choices, paid my own bills, shovelled my own snow, and had relationships that allowed for a lot of freedom on both sides.' Slowly, however, she saw that she had become quite dependent in another way. 'I had fallen into the habit of defining myself in terms of who I was to other people and what they expected of me.' Who am I, she wanted to know, away from the things that define me - my family, children, job, friends? Steinbach searches for the answer in some of the most exciting places in the world- Paris, where she finds a soulmate in a Japanese man; Oxford, where she learns more from a ballroom dancing lesson than any of her studies; Milan, where she befriends a young woman about to be married. Beautifully illustrated with postcards Steinbach wrote home to herself, this is an unforgettable voyage of discovery 278 pages. Black and white illustrations. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel; Travel & Places; Autobiography::Memoir. ISBN: 1863253769. ISBN/EAN: 9781863253765. Inventory No: 238179. Paperback
