Published for the first time in Spanish, this autobiography of Hollywood star and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe sheds an intimate and revealing light on her often troubled and tragic life. Written at the height of her fame, the memoirs describe her childhood as an unwanted orphan—moving from one foster home to another—her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, and her marriage to Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio. What emerges is a portrait of an intelligent and talented, but vulnerable, woman. Dozens of color photographs—many previously unpublished—by renowned Hollywood photographer Milton Greene capture Monroe’s one-of-a-kind beauty and energy.

Publicado por primera vez en castellano, esta autobiografía de la estrella de cine y sex symbol Marilyn Monroe arroja una luz íntima y reveladora sobre su vida frecuentemente agitada y trágica. Escritas en la cima de su fama, estas memorias describen su niñez como huérfana no deseada—mudándose de una casa de acogida a otra—los primeros años de su adolescencia, su ascendencia en la industria cinemática desde actor secundario a celebridad y su matrimonio a Joe DiMaggio, una leyenda con los Yankees. Lo que resulta es un retrato de una mujer inteligente y talentosa, pero también vulnerable. Docenas de fotografías a todo color—muchas de ellas inéditas—del renombrado fotógrafo de Hollywood Milton Greene captan la belleza y energía única de Monroe.
