During the life of this star of the screen and icon to thousands, one subject remained taboo despite her well-known forthrightness and often painful honesty. Was Katherine Hepburn a lesbian? This biography directly addresses and documents the numerous accounts of Hepburn's lesbian affairs, including her relationships with Laura Harding, Jane Loring, Elissa Landi, Phyllis Wilbourn and others. In addition it provides a re-examination of the star's noted 'love affair' with Howard Hughes and her relationship with Spencer Tracy. Truly eye-opening.
