Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Simon Prebble provides a sincere and authoritative tone and also offers an occasional offhand breathy vocal characterization of Monroe...Superb..." - AudioFile Magazine
"The immediacy and charm of Clark's recollections are possibly more illuminating than the millions of words and pictures pumped out to expose or dish the dirt on the Monroe legend." - Sunday Times
"Clark is both a sharp and affectionate diarist...his book has an entertaining narrative bounce." - The Guardian
"Beguiling, touching and compassionate." - Evening Standard
"An extraordinary story." - Spectator
