Marilyn by Eve Arnold, 1955

“A brilliant, believable read…a weird and wonderful look into Marilyn Monroe’s life, from her childhood in foster homes and orphanages to her many marriages and relationships and her eventual death…though her fame certainly adds something, this would have been a really interesting read even if she wasn’t a well known name…inspiring and entertaining…a proper, engaging story that is a really fun and educational read. I learnt a lot, not just of the actress’s love for pills and booze but also about the politics of the day, but at the same time it didn’t seem at all like a history lesson.”
