Marilyn by Gloria Steinem( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gloria Steinem & rsquo;s insightful and uniquely sensitive account of Hollywood & rsquo;s brightest star from the Golden Age Few books have altered the perception of a celebrity as much as Marilyn. Gloria Steinem reveals that behind the familiar sex symbol lay a tortured spirit with powerful charisma, intelligence, and complexity. The book delves into a topic many other writers have ignored & mdash;that of Norma Jeane, the young girl who grew up with an unstable mother, constant shuffling between foster homes, and abuse. Steinem evocatively recreates that world, connecting it to the fragile adult persona of Marilyn Monroe. Her compelling text draws on a long, private interview Monroe gave to photographer George Barris, part of an intended joint project begun during Monroe & rsquo;s last summer. Steinem & rsquo;s Marilyn also includes Barris & rsquo;s extraordinary portraits of Monroe, taken just weeks before the star & rsquo;s death

Marilyn : her life in her own words by George Barris( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On June 1, 1962, George Barris, internationally renowned photographer and journalist, arrived at the Hollywood movie set where Marilyn Monroe was making her last film, Something's Got to Give. It was Marilyn's thirty-sixth birthday and George Barris was assigned by a national magazine to photograph and interview her. Eight years earlier, Barris first met Marilyn while she was filming The Seven Year Itch in New York. They got on famously then and agreed to someday produce a picture book and autobiography together. Now the time had come for them to carry out Marilyn's dream. For the next six weeks, George Barris photographed Marilyn on the beach at Santa Monica and in a house in North Hollywood and Marilyn told him the story of her life - she was exuberant, carefree, and eager to live. George Barris talked to Marilyn Monroe one more time, on Friday afternoon, August 3. She was found dead on Saturday, August 4, less than twenty-four hours after Marilyn had phoned him. The tragic news of Marilyn's death shocked the nation...and George Barris. For over thirty years, he kept from publication her complete story. Now decades later, he believes it is time to share Marilyn's legacy with the world
