Ruth Bader Ginsburg: The Last Interview: and Other Conversations
Ruth Bader Ginsburg: The Last Interview: and Other Conversations is a terrific collection of interviews given by Justice Ginsburg. The interviews provide you with some candid conversation with the famed Justice and some very cerebral insight into how she crafted her opinions for the court. The book doesn’t earn five stars because some of the interviews provide repeated information which makes the book a little less enjoyable as I felt I wanted to continuously wanted to learn new things about this amazing woman. The author did a nice job of pulling interviews from many decades of Justice Ginsburg’s life and they even made sure to include an interview that included Justice Scalia, who was often on the opposing point of view professionally BUT was a terrifically close friend personally. I think my favorite story that was shared involved Ruth’s love of opera and her long-held desire to become an opera diva…alas that was not to be as she was monotone (her own words). However, the next best thing is that an opera was written about her and Justice Scalia, who shared Ruth’s love of opera, This book is an easy read and gives a wonderful quick glimpse into Justice Ginsburg’s long and venerable life.
