Summary
Who was Alice Marble? In her public life, she was the biggest tennis star of the pre-war era. She was also a fashion designer and trendsetter, a contributor to a pioneering new comic called Wonder Woman, and friend to the biggest names in Hollywood and society like Carole Lombard, Clark Gable, William Randolph Hearst and the Bloomingdale family. She helped integrate tennis with her support of Althea Gibson, and even coached two young women who became stars in their own right: Billie Jean King and Sally Ride. But her private life provoked constant speculation and her own memoirs added layers of legend upon stories. For the first time here, we come closer than ever before to the truths of this unforgettable life.--
