Synopsis: At Home With Kate offers an inside look at Katherine Hepburn’s life and home, from the vantage of Eileen Considine-Meara, daughter of Hepburn’s live-in cook and housekeeper. This extraordinary book reveals the real woman behind the icon, sharing her daily rituals and telling stories of the many famous friends she frequently entertained, including Sidney Poitier, Lauren Bacall, Robert Wagner, and many more.
From the Inside Flap:
Four-time Academy Award winner Katharine Hepburn is known for many things: her sharp wit, her fierce independence, her preference for slacks, and her longtime romance with Spencer Tracy. Her movies and legacy continue to be cherished by millions all over the world. Kate was smart and independent at a time when those traits were often considered unbecoming in a woman. She was both mysterious and outspoken, cherishing her privacy as much as she treasured those who shared her life. Until now, few people have known what the legendary star was really like. Now, in At Home with Kate, Eileen Considine-Meara, the daughter of Norah Considine—Hepburn's cook and housekeeper of thirty years—shares her vivid and delightful account of life with the silver screen's most fascinating woman.
From her unique and intimate vantage point, Considine-Meara takes you into Kate's New York East 49th Street town house and her Connecticut estate, Fenwick. Although Norah's boss could be demanding, At Home with Kate shows that Kate was really a loving, fun, and generous person. This extraordinary book reveals the real woman behind the iconic image, sharing Kate's daily rituals, describing the dishes and delicious meals Kate most enjoyed, telling stories of the friends she welcomed and entertained—including Sidney Poitier, Lauren Bacall, Warren Beatty, Anthony Quinn, Robert Wagner, and other stars—and revealing the pastimes that gave Kate the most pleasure.
Including rare family photographs, letters, essays, and personal memorabilia that Kate bequeathed to Norah, as well as a charming assortment of Kate's favorite recipes, At Home with Kate is chock-full of wonderful stories, including how Kate organized a mass for her beloved Spencer Tracy even though she herself was not religious; how Norah and Kate tirelessly bailed out her flooded Connecticut estate from under a siege of water, bucket by bucket; anecdotes about Kate's close friendships with Laura Harding, Irene Selznick, and others; what happened the night Kate served dinner for a shy Michael Jackson; and tales of the intense and devoted relationship between Kate and Norah, two tough and tender women.
An enchanting visit into the everyday life of a one-of-a-kind star, At Home with Kate is a loving tribute to the legend, the actress, and the woman.
