Now in paperback, two books about wonderful women and one about the man who invented Wonder Woman.
Mademoiselle: Coco Chanel and the Pulse of History (Random House) by Rhonda K. Garelick is a meticulously researched, readable biography of the fearless designer who transformed how women dress, with lots of gorgeous photos.
The Secret History of Wonder Woman (Vintage) by Jill Lepore is a totally fascinating account of the life and times of William Moulton Marston, who besides being the creator of Wonder Woman was a psychologist, inventor, feminist, polygamist and con man.
Yes, Please (Dey Street Books) by Amy Poehler is a laugh-out-loud funny, keenly intelligent memoir by the comedy powerhouse we know and love from Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation and much more.
