Meryl Streep is the most celebrated actress of our time. She's a chameleon who disappears fully into each character she plays. She never tackles the same role twice. Instead, she leverages her rarified platform to channel a range of dynamic, complicated women rather than limit herself to marginal roles for which other actresses must settle. Journalist and author Erin Carlson documents all of Streep's Oscars, accents, causes, memes, friendships and feuds, while also exploring the "off-brand" forays into action-adventure (The River Wild) and musicals (Mamma Mia!), and how Streep managed to sneak her feminism into each character.
