The classic, definitive biography of Marilyn Monroe, now updated in the year of the 50th anniversary of the iconic star's death

She was born Norma Jeane but the world knew and loved her as Marilyn. Her life was one of unprecedented fame and private misery, her death a tragedy surrounded by mysteries. Drawing on first-hand interviews Anthony Summers offers both a classic biography and a shockingly revealing account of the screen goddess's relations with John and Robert Kennedy.

'The definitive story of the legend ... more convincing at every page - told with all the coldness of truth and the authority of the historian, but at the end of it we still love Marilyn' Maeve Binchy, Irish Times

MEDIA REVIEWS
The fullest factual account of Monroe's life and death we're likely to get * Evening Standard *
Convincing evidence of a crude but effective cover-up which was designed to protect Robert Kennedy * Times Literary Supplement *
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 *
Anthony Summers is one of the most highly skilled investigative reporters writing today -- Norman Mailer
