And sometimes that’s all people could see: The trouble is being a sex symbol means being a “thing.” But she was, in reality, a complex, talented, and troubled woman. You can almost hear Marilyn’s soft, breathy voice rising from these pages as the screen goddess discusses her difficult childhood, feelings of worthlessness, opinions on men, relationships with her co-stars, decision to train with famed acting teacher Lee Strasberg, and turbulent personal life. Gloria Steinem provides her uniquely feminist and sympathetic perspective on Monroe’s persona.

    its like talking to marilyn... only you dont get to ask the questions. the paper does...

    this is by far one of my favorite books in this series... 1. because i am a drop dead fan of marilyns and 2. because i dont know how fun it would be to read a fictional conversation on any one else in the series. by the same person who brought you the greatest marilyn reader out in stores 'yona zeldis mcdonough' this book will ticke your sides 'ouch did i just say that? lame...'. its a good read for short trips... and it is at a somewhat decent price... pick one up!
