It was one of the greatest romances of our time. They were both Hollywood giants in their own right, yet it was the nine hit films Katherine Hepburn made with Spencer Tracy that, in the eyes of the American public, defined them as Hollywood's most celebrated romantic team.

On-screen, the headstrong Tracy had met his match, and she put him in his place. Off-screen, despite the fact that he never divorced his wife, Kate remained utterly devoted to the mercurial, sometimes violent Spencer as he battled his dependence on alcohol.

Christopher Andersen reveals fascinating insights from important sources, and offers the full, poignant story of their life together. An Affair to Remember paints the complete, inspiring, often funny, sometime heartbreaking, always captivating portrait of the unique relationship between these two American icons.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Althea | 1/11/2014

    " A rather ordinary biography but it did give me some insight into Spencer Tracy's unpleasant personality and Katharine Hepburn's total devotion to him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 1/2/2014

    " A beautiful and honest look at the relationship of these two talented people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 12/21/2013

    " This one was a slow start but picked up once it got into the relationship between Tracy and Hepburn. It was a dream shatterer for me though. I always thought they had this ideal relationship. Boy, was I wrong! They were as normal as everybody else. Lots of Hollywood gossip in this book too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurette | 12/17/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lois | 12/2/2013

    " This book was well done and really gave a background on both Hepburns and Tracy's lives - but Spencer Tracy was a dog and Katherine Hepburn must have had her own issues to tolerate his garbage for so many years! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn | 11/22/2013

    " Loved this book. Very interesting on the love story of Hepburn & Tracy. "

    " The Greatest Love Story ever. I so wanted what they had. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 12/25/2012

    " I'm almost embarrassed to admit I read this -- the way I'm embarrassed when someone catches me looking at People magazine. Gossipy fun, though. (And yes, a pleasurable read.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 12/9/2012

    " I liked this a lot. I have a new appreciation for Spencer Tracy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 7/20/2012

    " Amazing, lovely, in-depth biography of both Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, and their films - and personal lives - together. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 9/21/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 7/25/2011

    " A bit sappy and fawning, but still a fascinating look at one of Hollywood's most famous couples. And man, Spencer Tracey had issues, yo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 12/19/2010

    " Great love story of Hepburn and Tracy. Obvious that three people (Hepburn, Tracy, Mrs. Tracy) were trying not to hurt one another while accepting the fact that Tracy and Hepburn were true soulmates. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Desrosiers | 12/19/2010

    " Lots of facts and anecdotes, but I still have no idea why a skinny prude WASP and a violent Catholic drunk hooked up to form the most fascinating couple in film history. "
