William J. Mann is a journalist and the author of Edge of Midnight, Behind the Screen, and Wisecracker. Then in 2007 along comes William J. Mann’s KATE: THE WOMAN WHO WAS HEPBURN, which throws most of that out the window.
William J. He lives in Palm Springs, California. Mann documents a woman who was driven largely by a desire for ever-expanding fame. Hepburn is often regarded as an early feminist, but in truth she never took any active role in expanding women’s rights; she is often regarded as a hard and fast liberal, but-with a few notable exceptions-she never involved herself in political actions, particularly if they might have a negative impact on her career. Mann, Katharine Hepburn’s latest biographer, says Hepburn’s father was still paying her bills . Mann, Katharine Hepburn’s latest biographer, says Hepburn’s father was still paying her bills when this feisty, starchy, no-nonsense American idol was 43. Not that there was anything wrong with this: he used his daughter’s paychecks to cover her expenses. And she may have been much too busy for bookkeeping chores. It’s just that this detail, and the many similar ones Mr. Mann has collected in Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn, goes against the grain of Hepburn’s public image

Mann-a cultural historian and journalist, a sympathetic admirer but no mere fan-has fashioned an intimate, often revisionist, and truly unique close-up that challenges much of what we think we know about the Great Kate. Previous biographies-mostly products of friends and fans-have recycled the stories she hid behind, taking Hollywood myths at face value.

According to William J Mann in his comprehensive new biography, that is emblematic of Kate Hepburn. For a woman who came from such a respectable backgound, Katharine Hepburn had a surprising amount to conceal from the press and public when she became a film star in 1934. Firstly, there was the family. From today's point of view, Hepburn's parents would bring kudos to anybody aspiring to be in the public eye. Mann (born August 7, 1963) is an American novelist, biographer, and Hollywood historian best . Mann (born August 7, 1963) is an American novelist, biographer, and Hollywood historian best known for his studies of Hollywood and the American film industry, especially his 2006 biography of Katharine Hepburn, Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn.
William Mann's story of Katharine Hepburn is certainly that kind of read. Never stiff or boring, he asks the questions that other bios have seemed to tip-toe around. What exactly were Ms Heburn's relationships like and with whom? There are tidbits of Kate's childhood that I found fascinating as well as tales of that old-guard Hollywood machine we know as the "Golden Age". While some might dismiss this book as all about "sex" I certainly didn't find it that way at all.
