MM short biography went to the factual and not the fiction. Short reading. I had a sense that Ben Hecht really controlled much of the text. Knowing that MM was a very intelligent person and not often outfoxed she could have written most of the book on her own. Too many times in the book it just feels like MM's persona is manipulated by Hecht. Joshua Greene has some gall writing the forward on MM when the Greene family still squeezes every dime possible even today. They were greedy when she was living and continue to do so in death. Then again all too many people (including DiMaggio and Miller) had their own best interests at heart. What a tragic life given all the sharks circling around her right up to the end...the Kennedys.

This is an eloquent short accounting of Monroe's life. It was touching from the first-hand perspective, to see through the eyes of such a legend. She did not feel about herself as others did, she was painfully aware of the expectations placed on her mortal soul when it came to the symbol she had become. And this was all before she was martyred in the eyes of all who beheld her beauty. Now she has become a standard (you'll find people utilizing allusions to her name when trying to sell sex or beauty), to which no one can truly hold a candle.

I have never really cared for Marilyn Monroe. I usually am attracted to girls with darker features and I assumed she was a very stick on herself Hollywood actress that died from drugs.
Reding this I realized that I knew nothing about her before and I couldn't be more wrong. I have a new respect for her and the amazing woman she was. Coming from her background to accomplish what she did is truly amazing
