Wonder Woman and Jill Lepore

Harvard history professor Jill Lepore has written The Secret History of Wonder Woman. The life story of WW creator William Moulton Marston is well-trod ground, I would say, but I picked up an autographed copy on ebay just in case. I'll let you know later if I learn anything new in the book. (By the way, the jacket design by Chip Kidd is perfectly bold and bright but I strongly dislike the way the pages' edges are staggered rather than flush.)

In the meantime, maybe you'd like to watch an interview with author Lepore that aired a couple months ago on c-span? It's right over here.
