Summary
Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) remains one of America's most compelling and tragic figures. Her films, as well as her public persona, established her as both a gifted artist and a potent cultural icon. This biography is a work of stunning scope and depth, both accurate and absorbing. Based on over 150 interviews and more than 35,000 pages of previously sealed files, including Monroe's diaries, letters, and other personal and revealing documents, this book reveals new details of every aspect of her life, from her guarded childhood, and her relationships with men and marriages, to her mysterious death. The author also comments on previous books about Marilyn, and puts to rest questions regarding Monroe's connection with the Kennedys. It is truly a revelatory portrait of Marilyn's personal and professional lives, as well as the truth about her controversial death. -- Publisher description
