Marilyn Monroe is one of the world's legends. She was one of the most famous, most beautiful and most talented women ever to have lived and her face will continue to be recognised the world over for decades to come. From her beginnings as a magazine cover girl, Marilyn soon took Hollywood by storm and became America's sweetheart. Her films, such as "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", "Some Like it Hot and Niagara" have become legendary in cinematic history, with Marilyn's beguiling screen presence never failing to draw the crowds. Marilyn was always ready for the cameras with a smile, but few people were afforded a glimpse of the real Marilyn, the character behind the star. Author James Haspiel was one of those privileged few who knew her personally, and whose photograph was found by her bed on the day she died. In these pages he reveals the hauntingly evocative tale of his Marilyn. He tells unique stories of her talent, fragility and her love and respect for life. Packed with photographs, personal letters and documents that will enthral Marilyn and movie fans alike, it is simply the ultimate tribute to one of the world's best-loved and most tragic icons.
