Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Marilyn Monroe is our supreme icon of glamour, vulnerability, personal magnetism, and the American dream, and her legend continues to grow four decades after her death. MM—Personal is a new look behind the veil of that legend, reproducing the most fascinating relics from her private archive—once thought to have been lost, and never before revealed to the public—to clarify, qualify, or reverse many common conceptions about the “blond bombshell.” 

Selected from more than 10,000 largely unseen and heretofore unpublished items from Marilyn’s own file cabinets, these documents, snapshots, letters, memorabilia, and ephemera are joined by the first account of Monroe’s life since Gloria Steinem’s Marilyn to be written by a feminist historian, revealing shades of her genius that have never before been fully understood. 


Praise for MM - Personal:

"MM-Personal offers a fascinating glimpse into an impossibly famous celebrity going about the business of living."
 --Wall Street Journal 

"MM-Personal
is filled with wonderful photographs . . . most accessible." 
-
Larry McMurtry for the New York Review of Books

"The book, a luscious glossy thing, is studded with photos, many of them Monroe's personal items-including artwork she purchased just before her death. . . . the overall vibe of the book is wrenching, because it clarifies Monroe's humanity, her working life, her normal day-to-day existence."
 - Liz Smith

"With each turn of the page comes a new surprise. You don't have to be an MM fanatic to get lost in this book." 
-Leonard Maltin
