“A phenomenal story.”
—Jon Stewart, “The Daily Show”
“Fascinating … Kiernan has amassed a deep reservoir of intimate details of what life was like for women living in the secret city, gleaned from seven years of interviews and research. … Rosie, it turns out, did much more than drive rivets.”
“Kiernan…brings a unique and personal perspective to this key part of American history…Instead of the words of top scientists and government officials, Kiernan recounts the experiences of factory workers, secretaries, and low-level chemists…She combines their stories with detailed reporting that provides a clear and compelling picture of this fascinating time.”
