Bella Abzug

Design by Susan Mitchell

If you grew up in New York in the '70s as I did, you know who Bella Abzug was. But if you don't know who she was, the "one tough broad" in the subtitle pretty much says it all. What's wonderful about this cover -- and what's particulary impressive when you see the book in person -- is how aggressively it jumps off the new books table, just as Abzug jumped into and shook up politics. If it seems a little over the top, it's because Abzug was.

My only beef? Abzug's trademark hat barely registers.
