    One thought on “Norma Jean”

    1. I read this in paperback years ago, probably as soon as it came out. The cover was so pretty. Good book. I recommend it.

    2. The first biography I read. I'd seen Some Like It Hot at the age of 14 and something indefinable clicked - you can debate that amongst yourselves as I have no idea. This though is not a scandalous biography, there are no conspiracies in it and thankfully no gibberish about murder, but it is thorough. It's about a life, just a life and all that happened in it, at least all that we're allowed to know. The general air is one of thoughtfulness, for the subject and the reader, which is no bad thing. [...]

    3. the saving grace of this book 1-writer actually interviewed miller. and pat newcombe (for wat thats worthe) miller is at times not complimentary but honest. wwriter freely admits not mentioning RFK's name when book was first published as RFK was currently politicalcandididate. but names him in foreward.

    4. This book was a detailed, "factual" account of the life of Marilyn Monroe. As you probably know, she brought herself up from very meager circumstances to movie star status. It read almost like a history book. I was glad it was not sensational. On the other hand, although this narrative of her life was interesting, there was no "color" at all to the story.

    5. It was ok, not the best Marilyn bio I have read, but ok. It was written soon after her death, and I think maybe he wanted to be respectful and not dig too deep.
