5 books of Marilyn Monroe

Written at the height of her fame but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-­1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, and her marriage to Joe DiMaggio. In this intimate account of a very public life, she tells of her first (non-­consensual) sexual experience, her romance with the Yankee Clipper, and her prescient vision of herself as "the kind of girl they found dead in the hall bedroom with an empty bottle of sleeping pills in her hand.­" The Marilyn in these pages is a revelation: a gifted, intelligent, vulnerable woman who was far more complex than the unwitting sex siren she portrayed on screen. Lavishly illustrated with photos of Marilyn, this special book celebrates the life and career of an American icon—-­from the unique perspective of the icon herself.

A resounding truth echoes in this story as Marilyn Monroe describes the fight for her life while she watched the cover-­up from her still-­conscious soul. She also reveals the true nature of her relationships with Joe DiMaggio, John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Frank Sinatra and Sam Giancana.

In telling her story, Marilyn's greatest wish was for her beloved Joe DiMaggio to know how she truly felt about him, and to be freed of the horrendous guilt he'd lived with every day since her passing. She discusses her friendship with John F. Kennedy and how he lived to see a prediction a New York psychic had forecasted, that their lives were in danger. She also discloses her relationship with Bobby Kennedy and the role he played in her death.
