Essential for Marilyn fans (from The Tealeaf Review)

I want to start off by saying that I can't really give this book any kind of true rating. There are hardly words to describe this book, much less a handful of stars. It's a rare thing when I pick up a non-fiction title, but when it contains Marilyn Monroe, I have to make an exception. Fragments is a beautiful book, full of her original thoughts, poems, and letters. It's unlike any Marilyn biography out there, because it is her. From the minute you see the first letter, you can just feel her coming off the page. She's there in every misspelled word and scratched out sentence. If you like your Marilyn as the picture of blonde perfection, this is definitely not for you. There's a real pain and humanity in her words, the overwhelming need to be loved and accepted. She was witty, shy, vulnerable, innocent, and remarkable. This is essential for any fan of the true Marilyn Monroe.
