    I love reading biographies, especially about famous people that I know very little about. When this book crossed my path I eagerly wanted to read it. This book starts off when Marilyn leaves Hollywood and everything else behind her. She had a failed marriage and an acting career, w...

    This is a lovely and heartbreaking portrait of a curious, passionate, and smart woman who was trying so hard for people to really see her. It's evident in this book that it might have been otherwise for Marilyn and the year that she spent in Manhattan may have been the closest she came...

    "Somebody asked me when I was born and I said, 'Just recently, in New York'" I can't tell you how much i loved this wonderful account of Marilyn's year of liberation and discovery in New York, 1955. So glad this had that specific focus and we get to see Marilyn happy, full of hope, ...

    This is a biography about the most important and to the author the happiest years of Ms. Monroe's life. This is the year that she breaks away from Fox studio where she has been typecast into "dumb" blonde roles. She wants badly to be taken seriously for her acting. She moves from Holl...

    Who isn't obsessed with Marilyn? Gone way before her time. I've read a lot of stuff about Marilyn, but I had no idea that she had spent almost a year in New York during a disagreement with her studio. She was tired of the sex kitten roles and she wanted to be an actress. Which is where...

    Elizabeth Winder is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. Earlier this year I read her book about Sylvia Plath, Pain Parties Work, and I adored it. When I saw that she had written a new book about another one of my favourite women, the one and only Marilyn Monroe, I knew I had to ...

    I received a free copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. There are so many things I can say about this book that I just don't have time to write them all down. So in order to shorten it up a little bit I will just say that this book was one of the best portr...
