THE ONLY WOMAN IN THE ROOM
This novel shares the astonishing narrative of a young Jewish woman in 1930s Vienna, married to Austria’s richest man, an arms dealer to Mussolini and then Hitler, who escapes to the Hollywood film world but, desirous of striking out against the Nazis, invents a ground-breaking weapons system, if only the Navy would use an invention made by a woman; it is the story of the movie star known as Hedy Lamarr, whose creation later became the foundation for wi-fi. And these books are only the beginning.
