Get Excited for This Celebratory 'Notorious R.B.G.' Biography


Coming soon: A full-length celebratory biography of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Even better, it’ll be co-written by the woman who created Notorious R.B.G., your favorite Tumblr starring a sitting Supreme Court Justice (not that Scalia’s Sonic the Hedgehog fan art isn’t lovely). I assume this knocks out at least 25 percent of your 2015 Christmas shopping.

That’s according to The Cut. They report that the blog’s author, NYU Law student Shana Knizhnik, will collaborate with Irin Carmon (MSNBC reporter and Jezebel emerita!) to craft Notorious R.B.G.: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Expect an “unobjective and irreverent celebration” of the second woman to sit on the land’s highest court, mixing pics, reporting and feminist history, for “anyone who loves R.B.G., especially young women who might go off their birth control so they can have their own Ruth Baby Ginsburg,” Carmon told The Cut.

The book drops this fall. The world continues to await a bibliographic celebration of Ruth Shader Ginsburg.
