The classic, definitive biography of Marilyn Monroe, now updated in the year of the 60th anniversary of the iconic star's death - now a major Netflix film, The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Untold Tapes

'Gets as near to the heart of the mystery as anyone ever will' Guardian

More than half a century after her death, Marilyn Monroe is arguably still one of the most famous people in the world. Her life was a contrast of public brilliance and private misery, her death a tragedy suffused by dark questions - about her relations with President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert. Drawing on more than 600 first-hand interviews, Anthony Summers offers the classic, definitive biography of a woman who captivated the world. Marilyn's tragic story is clouded by gossip-reporting more than almost any other. GODDESS, however, delivers new, fully documented yet exciting fact.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The fullest factual account of Monroe's life and death we're likely to get - Evening Standard

Gets as near to the heart of the mystery as anyone ever will - Guardian

The most authoritative account ever written about the greatest sex symbol of them all - Woman

A remarkable performance . . . The ghost of Marilyn Monroe cries out in these pages - New York Times

[Marilyn] was a genius, a sorceress who could stimulate the world's sexuality and still seem innocent, turn on a light and become 'Marilyn Monroe.' And she has become eternal. This is the most believable, useful book of all the books about her - Harvey Wasserman, former professor of psychiatry, Yale University College of Medicine

Mesmerizing ... reads like something out of a Robert Ludlum thriller - BOSTON GLOBE

A very fine piece of writing - LITERARY REVIEW
