The biggest tennis star of the pre-war era, Alice Marble won 18 Grand Slam titles, yet she was also a fashion designer, a contributor to a pioneering new comic called Wonder Woman, and friend to the biggest names in Hollywood. Her private life provoked speculation when she was alive, while her posthumous memoirs contain extravagant, unproven stories of her work as a spy during World War II, and the alleged loss of her husband in combat. Uncovering Marble's fascinating story, Robert Weintraub finds a figure who was even more mysterious than expected, but also a powerful woman who knew her worth, demanding equal pay to men decades earlier than other female athletes.
