Seduction by Karina Longworth

Staff Pick

My favorite thing about Karina Longworth’s biography of Howard Hughes is that it’s not about Howard Hughes at all. Seduction is really the story of the women in Hughes’s life—Katharine Hepburn, Jane Russell, among others—in all their complicated, messy glory. Readers might know Longworth from her podcast “You Must Remember This,” in which she breaks down the myths of Hollywood history from the Golden Age to today. Seduction is a perfect companion to Longworth’s podcast—the ideal balance of scandalous anecdotes and well-researched historical context that make for a compelling, satisfying read.
