“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 is a collection compiled by journalist Irin Carmon, who was inspired by the Tumblr website created by Shana Knizhnik that humored even the Justice herself. Their research includes intimate access to Ginsburg's family members, close friends, colleagues, and clerks, including interviews with Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 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.
