Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg

By Irin Carmon, Shana Knizhnik

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"The authors make this unassuming, most studious woman come pulsing to life. . . . Notorious RBG may be a playful project, but it asks to be read seriously. . . . That I responded so personally to it is a testimony to [its] storytelling and panache."-- Jennifer Senior, New York Times

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg never asked for fame--she has only tried to make the world a little better and a little freer.

But nearly a half-century into her career, something funny happened to the octogenarian: she won the internet. Across America, people who weren't even born when Ginsburg first made her name as a feminist pioneer are tattooing themselves with her face, setting her famously searing dissents to music, and making viral videos in tribute.

Notorious RBG, inspired by the Tumblr that amused the Justice herself and brought to you by its founder and an award-winning feminist journalist, is more than just a love letter. It draws on intimate access to Ginsburg's family members, close friends, colleagues, and clerks, as well an interview with the Justice herself. An original hybrid of reported narrative, annotated dissents, rare archival photos and documents, and illustrations, the book tells a never-before-told story of an unusual and transformative woman who transcends generational divides. As the country struggles with the unfinished business of gender equality and civil rights, Ginsburg stands as a testament to how far we can come with a little chutzpah.



    REVIEW QUOTES
Reading [NOTORIOUS RBG] feels like reading a story told by a very smart friend, interspersed with photos of brilliant fan art....Altogether, the book accomplishes a tricky task: celebrating Ruth Bader Ginsburg as an icon, while also making us see and understand her as a real person. --Bitch Media"
Highly entertaining --Boston Globe"
A deeply original mashup of pop culture and serious scholarship. I plan to give a copy to both of my daughters. --Gilbert King, Pulitzer Prize winning author of "Devil in the Grove""
