Summary
Full scale biography of motion picture actress Marilyn Monroe exploring in detail every aspect of her life and overturning many falsehoods
Summary
More than thirty years after her death, Marilyn Monroe still beguiles the world and her image enthralls millions. Many books have attempted to explain her allure and tell her story. Biographer Donald Spoto's exhaustive research uncovers a conspiracy of silence, allowing him to present the facts, free from often-repeated myths and speculation. Granted access to more than 35,000 pages of formerly sealed files containing letters, diaries, appointment books, and other intimate papers, he also interviewed nearly two hundred people who had never before spoken on the record. From the papers of Marilyn's psychiatrist and her medical files, to recently declassified government documents, the truth emerges and provides a moving, often shocking picture of the real Marilyn Monroe-including the horrifying, bizarre truth about how she really died
