Publishers Description: Using the long, singular life of the American icon as a foundation, Karen Karbo teases out lessons we can learn from the actresss life on the universal themes of love, marriage, work, conquering fear, the rewards and hazards of saying what you mean, honour, aging and happiness. 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 Author Biography: Karen Karbo is the author of three novels, all of which were named New York Times Notable Books. Her essays, reviews and articles have appeared in the New York Times, Elle, Vogue and Esquire. Her favourite Hepburn movie is Holiday.
