Overview


Now in her late 70s, June DiMaggio, niece of baseball legend Joe DiMaggio and a dear friend of Marilyn Monroe for 11 years, tells untold stories of the two legendary, very private stars that are insightful and engaging.The DiMaggio family has always been very private. In fact, no book has ever been written by a member of Joe DiMaggio's clan until now.June has been around celebrities all her life. A star in her own right, June befriended Marilyn and other Hollywood stars in the '50s. Candid and charming, June tells it the way it was: She sets the record straight, and she pulls no punches in describing Hollywood behind the glitz and glitter of the studios and cameras.She well understood-as did Joe and his family-that the real Marilyn Monroe was more than a movie star and sex symbol. June helps us see Monroe for who she was--intelligent, warm, funny, generous of spirit, good-hearted, well-read, articulate and a delightful, loving friend.And that her death was anything but suicide.
