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.
