Goddess: The Secret Lives Of Marilyn Monroe

Anthony Summers

5 Reviews

Rated 0

Biography: arts & entertainment, Prose: non-fiction

The classic, definitive biography of Marilyn Monroe, now updated in the year of the 60th anniversary of the iconic star's death

'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.
