Attention sports fans: Sports writer Rob Weintraub is the author of a fascinating new book on tennis star, Alice Marble. Publisher’s Weekly says The Divine Miss Marble: A Life of Tennis, Fame, and Mystery is “must reading”. A winner of both the US Tennis Open and Wimbledon titles, Marble’s story is an insightful study of competitive sports and the movie-star life she led during the 1930’s and World War II.
