Norman Mailer (1923-2007) was one of the most influential writers of the 20th century, producing more than 30 books over his writing career, including an acclaimed account of the fight between Muhammed Ali and George Foreman. His first novel, The Naked and the Dead, has never gone out of print. He is the only person to have won Pulitzers in both fiction (The Executioner's Song) and nonfiction (The Armies of the Night, for which he pioneered a new type of creative nonfiction).

Marilyn based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.
This was a waste of time. It was a horrible read & boring. This has to be the worst book I have ever read. The author wrote more about his feelings & philosophies & he just rambled
Although I am a fan of both Mailer and Monroe, I do not think he captured her uniqueness in this book. It seemed to me that Mailer did not care for Marilyn as a person, just gave the plain facts, mostly about her marriage to Arthur Miller.
This book was very helpful in getting Marilyn's emotional life and the pictures were beautiful and dazzling! She'll never be forgotten when remembered this way!
How many books can one person read?give it arest give her arest write about someone else shes dead so let her be
