Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
The facts of Marilyn Monroe's life have been endlessly, if tediously, recorded in a great many books and studies, the sheer number of which attests to her enduring fascination. Yet somehow, even when the facts appear to be right, "It's all true, but it isn't the truth" -- as Arthur Miller says in After the Fall. What is missing in the Monroe books is any sense of the woman's dynamic, dramatic often contradictory character, the thousands of trivial details never quite add up to a life. The narratives feels so flat because the main character does not act, so much as she is acted upon.

This book is vivid, serious, and well-researched. It tells the story in a whole new way. Disregarding the hangers-on, the private investigators, and fan club officials, who seem to have cast a spel lover previous biographers, Barbara Leaming has gone back to the primary sources and has researched Marilyn Monroe's life from the beginning. She has had access to letters and documents including those of Arthur Miller, John Huston, Elia Kazan, Laurance Olivier and her psychiatrist Ralph Greenson and, as a result, her book is textured and unpredictable. Strange to say, for all that has been published on Marilyn Monroe, hers is one of the few great Hollywood stories that remain to be told.
