Annotation:
This addition to the abundant library of Monroe biographies is a serious account of the human being behind the glamourous fa?ade, with unique information culled from primary sources. The author has also written such celebrity biographies as "Katherine Hepburn" and "Orson Welles". A "New York Times" Notable Book for 1998.

Praise

New York Times
"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 serious
biographical 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...."
- Michiko Kakutani 12/18/1998
