Even the most ardent tennis fans may not have heard of Alice Marble, but after listening to this informative audiobook, they'll be glad they learned about this extraordinary woman. Ably narrated by Jonathan McClain, this biography chronicles the career of the winner of 18 Grand Slam championships, along with the details of her private life, which raised more questions than it answered. Was she a spy? Was she a jet-setter? Was she really married to a man who was killed during WWII? McClain's performance is more than up to the task. He enhances Weintraub's fascinating narrative, transforming his words into moments of joy, wonder, and most importantly, reverence for a woman who, for better or worse, lived her life to the fullest.
