"A deeply personal account of Bette Davis's harrowing but inspiring final years--from the woman who knew her best of all. Miss D & Me is a story of two powerful women--one at the end of her life and the other at the beginning--and how they changed each other forever. As Bette Davis aged, she was looking for an assistant, but she found something more than that in Kathryn Sermak: a loyal and loving confidante, a co-conspirator in her jokes and schemes, and a competent worker whom she trained to never miss a detail. But Miss D, as Kathryn called her, had strict rules for Kathryn about everything from how to eat a salad to how to wear her hair--even changing the spelling of Kathryn's name (she added the y). For ten years, Kathryn was at Miss D's side--first as an employee and then as her closest friend. Throughout their time together, Kathryn had a front-row seat to Davis's late-career renaissance, as well as to the humiliating public betrayal that nearly killed her beloved boss and benefactor. Miss D & Me is an intimate account of the last years of the unique and formidable Bette Davis--a tale of extreme kindness, unfailing loyalty, breathtaking style, and the beautiful friendship that endured through it all."--Jacket.
