Everyone knew Wendy Wasserstein — or so they thought. Beloved by directors, critics, and actresses, the Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist filled her work with intimate details about herself and her loved ones, creating painfully real tales about women’s struggles. When a friend confided that she’d tasted her own menstrual blood, Wasserstein thought nothing of putting the story in a play. But when it came to her own secrets — the identity of her daughter’s father, the lymphoma that killed her at 55 — even her most trusted friends were left in the dark. No doubt those friends will devour this fascinating biography, which lays bare everything from Wasserstein’s unorthodox parents to her romantic relationships with openly gay men. Like the playwright’s best work, it’s a deeply personal portrait of a woman that’s bound to cause a small scandal. B+
