Miss D & me, life with the invincible Bette Davis
Publication year: 2017
Media class: Hardback
Publisher: Hachette Books
The Hollywood icon Bette Davis remains an enigma - the public eye. Only one person truly knew both her indomitable strength and her private vulnerability - Kathryn Sermak, her personal assistant and protege for the last decade of her life. When Kathryn started working for Miss D in 1979, the recent college graduate was a self-professed 'rube' who had to be schooled my her new employer in everything from how to give a proper handshake to which fork to use for dinner by her exacting, sometimes imperious boss. But under Miss D's tutelage, Kathryn began to blossom, and a close friendship began to develop. Using one of their final road trips together in France during the summer of 1985 as a backdrop, this is the story of Kathryn and Miss D's unlikely friendship and a fascinating look at a larger-than-life diva who was determined to live her life on her own terms.
