'Genius' The New York Times

In 1973, Norman Mailer published Marilyn, his celebrated in-depth account of the life of Marilyn Monroe, as a glossy, fully illustrated coffee-table tome. His work was immediately acclaimed - and an enduring bestseller, rumoured to have sold more copies than any of his other works except The Naked and the Dead. Yet, until now, it has never been made available in an accessible mass-market paperback edition.

This is one of America's greatest writers taking on the legend of one of Hollywood's greatest stars.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Marilyn is ... genius. Up to now we've had mostly contradictory views of Monroe. With his fox's ingenuity, Mailer puts her together and shows how she might have been torn apart ...

Marilyn is great as only a great writer using his brains and feelers could make it ... a runaway string of perceptions ... You read him with a heightened consciousness because his performance has zing. It's the star system in literature; you can feel him bucking for the big time, and when he starts flying it's so exhilarating you want to applaud ...

This brilliant book ... a feat.
