Lasso of Truth

Lasso of Truth by Carson Kreitzer


You know, once the bracelets are on, you can’t take them off.

Who is Wonder Woman and where did she come from? Lasso of Truth explores the knotty origin story of our preeminent female superhero, created by William Marston, inventor of the first lie-detector machine. This smart, seductive, wild ride features the two women Marston lived with in a polyamorous relationship – both of whom inspired the famous character – plus a girl in search of answers about her childhood heroine, and a guy trying to hold on to his prized first issue.

10 words or less: The intoxicating appeal of (super)power(s).

Rated: R.
