Marilyn: A Biography
'Genius' The New York Times
In 1973, Norman Mailer published Marilyn, his celebrated in-depth account of the life of Marilyn Monroe, as a glossy, fully illustrated coffee-table tome.

Yet, until now, it has never been made available in an accessible mass-market paperback edition.
This is one of America's greatest writers taking on the legend of one of Hollywood's greatest stars.
