Deleted Scenes From The Book of Jezebel

Excellent news for fans of clever encyclopedias, interesting lady things and/or The Book of Jezebel: Because we were unable to cover every interesting person and thing — either because of space limitations, timing, or pure oversight — we've whipped up a batch of new entries (and some gorgeous illustrations) for your reading pleasure. Included in this round: Missy Elliot, Tami Taylor, Althea Gibson, Wendy Davis, Coco Chanel — and a couple dozen other cultural references worth knowing. Check it out.
