Praise
"Barbara Leaming's uneven new biography attempts to strip away the accretions of myth that have grown up around the actress to give us a portrait of Monroe the woman: a deeply troubled and unstable individual, who never managed to overcome the sense of abandonment she experienced as a child growing up in a succession of foster homes....In relating this story, Ms. Leaming creates a novelistic narrative, animated by dramatic set pieces and vivid cameo portraits. But while this method makes for a highly readable story, it frequently sidesteps the standards of seriousbiographical research. In her role as an omniscient narrator, Ms. Leaming displays a troubling penchant for sweeping generalizations without providing the reader with the sort of detailed footnotes that might back up such insights into the protagonists' states of mind...."
