Based on her personal archive of over 35,000 pages of documents - including letters, diaries, billets doux and suicide notes - as well as extensive interviews with friends and colleagues, this biography of Marilyn Monroe rejects many myths about her dramatic childhood, her marriages, and her relationships with Hollywood moguls, politicians, poets, artists and statesmen. It also offers evidence of the truth behind her death.Review:
This is a book that wound up teaching me a great deal about Hollywood, the social history of California, the movie business, the trials of female actors in American show business and the life of a woman who has been so mythologized that often the real woman is obscured from actual view.--Erica Jong "The Instrumentalist "
