Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This latest in the flood of books about Marilyn Monroe comes from feminist-journalist Steinem. Steinem admits that as a teenager she walked out on the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes because she was embarrassed at Monroe's performance/persona. Now admiring of her subject, Steinem spends little time on Monroe's films but instead concentrates on her personality, believing it, along with her appearance, to be responsible for her status as a cultural icon. Occasionally Steinem's prose is too purple, but for the most part the book serves well as an even-handed introduction to the Monroe phenomenon. Barris's numerous photographs are attractive but somewhat repetitious, as they apparently were taken at just a few sessions. Fortunately, some photos from additional sources are used to depict other aspects of Monroe's life. John Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Freehold, N.J.

    A woman's view of Marilyn.

    Gloria Steinem gives a very touching view on the life of Marilyn Monroe. George Barris contributes photos--The last photos ever taken of Marilyn Monroe professionally. I truly enjoyed this book (I own the older hard back), and always recommend this to anyone who is just learning about Marilyn, as well as someone who enjoys beautiful pictures of Marilyn.

    Not just another tabletop book-

    I expected a photo book. I took a long time to read Ms. Steinem's text. When I did, the text brought insights that I never expected. Steinhem allows us to have a fresh look at a woman brought down by the age she lived in, not just by drugs and liquor.
