Re My Week With Marylin
I read the book years ago and, as I recall, the author never had an affair with Monroe. I understand he does in the movie. The problem with that is that I seem to recall from the book that the author is gay.
Which might not necessarily have precluded an affair, though. Remember Cecil Beaton's memoirs in which he chronicles at some length an affair with Greta Garbo? I vividly remember wondering while reading, which is more amazing - that Beaton had an affair with Garbo or that Beaton had an affair with a woman at all?
