"Banner elegantly and skillfully chronicles Monroe’s short life…. [she] paints a portrait of Monroe as a complicated, many-faceted woman."—Publishers Weekly
I highly recommend this book to Marilyn fans, those who are curious and those who like biographies.
So much has been written about Marilyn and this exploration is more detailed but I do not believe it holds any new revelations.
So if you want to know who "some" of the people are who "say" these things, you will not find an answer anywhere in this book.
am reading it. it needs editing. but i am enjoying reading it. it could be written better. sorry to say so.Published 1 month ago by Simone Gad

This is the first and only biography of MM I've ever read. I really wanted to know "the facts" about her life. Not the gossip. Not the rumors nor innuendo. Read morePublished 5 months ago by M. Frost
The first half of this book reads like a literature review for a Ph.D dissertation. Dull but informative. The second half was more interesting. Read morePublished 6 months ago by ladygodiving
