Katharine Hepburn : a Hollywood Yankee by Gary Carey( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though totally without surprises, depth, or fresh research (virtually no trace of original interview material), this short biography of Katharine Hepburn--an update of a 1975 paperback original--is a cut above fanzine trash. There's relatively little here about the un-flashy star's private life; briefly mentioned are her strong family background, her very brief marriage, her romances with Leland Hayward and Howard Hughes, and (in more detail) her longtime relationship with the increasingly ill Spencer Tracy. The long, busy career, however, receives a solid rundown--from her erratic theater beginnings to celebrity; from instant film-stardom through the ups and downs of the Thirties; from "The Philadelphia Story" comeback to the Tracy/Hepburn comedy hits and finally her "daring and triumphant leap into middle age" in "The African Queen." Carey, a tartly discriminating viewer of the Hepburn canon, judges Mary Tyrone in Long Day's Journey as "her greatest performance" to date but is slightly less trustworthy and comprehensive on Hepburn's stage work. As a film-by-film, play-by-play chronology, this is sturdy and reasonably balanced

The idiot : notes by G. K Carey( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Idiot, Prince Myshkin, a saintly man, is thrust into the heart of a society obsessed with wealth, power, and sexual conquest. He soon finds himself at the center of a violent love triangle in which a notorious woman and a beautiful young girl become rivals for his affections. Extortion, scandal, and murder follow, as Dostoevsky's "positively good man" clashes with the emptiness of a society that cannot accommodate his moral idealism. This wonderfully fresh and faithful translation-never before published-is sure to become the definitive edition in English
