The Secret History of Wonder Woman - Jill Lepore

If you are a fan of the Wonder Woman comic and want to get a brief idea of the creator then this might be an interesting although somewhat superficial read.


Ultimately, this is really a short biography of William Marston and his feminist ideals.  I was hoping for a more in depth understanding of the actual creation of the Wonder Woman series and Marston's polyamorous relationship with his wife and Margaret Stanger.  What was provided was fascinating but 46% of the book s footnotes, and you really need to read the footnotes to get more detail.  So ultimately, I was left a little disappointed.
