Molly Ivins: A Rebel Life shines because of its subject, a woman with a pampered, conservative childhood who became an outspoken journalist with an irrepressible energy to shake things up.

One would want to see a more balanced view, perhaps exploring how her private life matched the public persona. But what a tornado of a person!
