I really enjoyed reading this book. These two women are so inspiring with their capacity for friendship and their own professional work. Keeping these separate as required was a demonstration of their high ethical standards and intuitive knowledge as to what was needed and wanted in sometimes very difficult situations.

Celebrated NPR correspondent Nina Totenberg delivers an extraordinary memoir of her personal successes, struggles, and life-affirming relationships, including her beautiful friendship of nearly fifty years with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

I listened to this on audio, read by Nina, and it had a very conversational tone to it that was appealing. The focus was mostly on friendships with Ruth, Cokie Roberts and others, in good times and bad. There was some discussion of politics, mostly in a balanced way as Nina had both liberal and conservative friends. I enjoyed this memoir.… (mais)

Even though the title is misleading, I really enjoyed this book. While it did contain some stories of the author's friendship with RBG, the book is really a memoir of Nina Totenberg's life, which was/is quite interesting in the telling. It was nice to read about the support from her female friends (and some men too) both in and out of the workplace. Women of a certain age will be able to identify with the sexist treatment of women in the workplace in the 60s, 70s and 80s. While it shows how much our culture has changed, it also shows, especially with the current court, that women's rights still need fighting for.… (mais)

Dinners With Ruth: A Memoir on the Power of Friendships by Nina Totenberg was another bingo book: a memoir. I had read an earlier book about the women of NPR--Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie--so was familiar with Nina Totenberg in a more personal way than just from her journalism work. She is, by all accounts, the tougher, feistier friend in the group so I am not surprised that she and RBG became lifelong friends. Totenberg uses that connection to move outward to other friends as well from her NPR colleagues to Supreme Court Justices. While there were plenty of juicy details related to the Court, including the Anita Hill case that is arguably Totenberg's biggest story, it was the personal reflection and insights into the lives of these women who were shattering the glass ceiling.… (mais)
