The best biography ever written about MM ! This was researched and written not long after Marilyn passed. Guiles was the only author who talked to two of the three of Marilyn's husbands and had access to many of the foster families she stayed with as a youth. Guiles tells you straight with no opinions and sensational gossip. This was originally written before the group of liars who tried to claim they knew Marilyn and made a career perpetrating lies in books and in print just to financially gain from her. Guiles shows the good and bad, she was human after all. If you want to really get a sense of who MM was and the people who surrounded and shaped her life read this book. There is a reason why every other biography on Marilyn takes from this book. If you could find a copy of this or the updated version titled Legend: The Life and Death of Marilyn Monroe by Guiles grab it you won't be able to put it down.

I purchased the paperback in the mid 1970's, now the book is in tatters.
So I bought this copy, which is excellent. Guiles book is the only
biography dealing with the REAL woman. What I found interesting was
her family's history of mental illness. I wish it could have delt with her grandmother more, Della Monroe. I felt she would have been the picture of Marilyn, if she had survived. Her mother, Gladys was the
spitting image of her daughter, as was her 'sister' Berniece.
But Marilyn was very talented--in fact when I saw, LADIES IN THE CHORUS,
I was blown away by her singing. This girl has got "real" talent and
can act like nothing I've ever seen,(DON'T BOTHER TO KNOCK, 1952).
Toward the end of her life, mental illness was destroying her life, along with severe alcoholism. But, I can't help but feel, that she was taken advantage of, especially by the Kennedys. I don't believe she killed herself, she had too much to live for, but it is possible that because of her involvement with the President and his brother, her life
was in grave danger. People cared about Marilyn and still do. She left
a unique collection of work. No one could ever replace her.

This is the original biography by Guiles, which he revisited and expanded fifteen years later. It's an important book because he actually met Marilyn during the Misfits shoot in Nevada, and he devoted many years to research and talking with people who knew and worked with MM. He knew of the RFK connection, but held back because Kennedy was still alive and running for president when the book was published. Guiles felt for Kennedy's kids. His revised version would be more candid and revealing.

One of the few Marilyn biographies not larded with hyperbole, conspiracy theories or worship. Naturally, it's out of print.

The tone is serious throughout; the author never uses phrases like "He must have felt"; neither does he invent dialogue. It is clear when he is quoting a primary source, which is often. I really felt this book does her justice.
Gelgen
This was a good book, I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it to other Marilyn Monroe fans to read.
Garr
Very very disapointed in the condition of this book. I will never know how it got a rating of very good! I am looking for a better copy of it right now. NOT HAPPY
Conjulhala
This was the best biography I've ever read about Marilyn Monroe, devoid of sensationalism. It was in good condition for being such an old book, just as they had advertised. It was delivered promptly.
A great find and an excellent read! You won't be disappointed. Get to amazon and find you a copy if you haven't read it!
