Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Though now dead longer than she was alive, Monroe continues to captivate and hypnotize. Released in 1974, a dozen years after her apparent suicide, this book is attributed to Monroe, although she had help from her friend Oscar-winning screenwriter Ben Hecht. Monroe offers biographical material as well as dirt on fellow Hollywood stars. Best to take some of this with a grain of salt but good fun nonetheless. Monroe's legions of fans will keep this one circulating. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
