Summary

This intimate collection of portraits reveals both writer and subject in fifty inspired pairings. Novelist Susan Orlean compares notes with Joan Didion, Orna Feldman marvels at Fresh Air's Terry Gross, Elizabeth Hardwick rediscovers Zelda Fitzgerald, and dozens more are memorably revealed. Each piece is accompanied by a lush, full-page duotone by such eminent photographers as Annie Leibovitz, Matthew Rolston, Brigitt LaCombe, and Michael Collopy. These fifty women come from all walks of life: art, politics, literature, fashion, science, and sports, but they all have one thing in common: they have made legendary contributions to our world.
