She was born Norma Jeane but the world knew and loved her as Marilyn. Her life was one of unprecedented fame and private misery, her death a tragedy surrounded by mysteries. Drawing on first-hand interviews Anthony Summers offers both a classic biography and a shockingly revealing account of the screen goddess's relations with John and Robert Kennedy. 'The definitive story of the legend ...more convincing at every page - told with all the coldness of truth and the authority of the historian, but at the end of it we still love Marilyn' Maeve Binchy, Irish Times

About the Author:

Anthony Summers formerly covered wars and other world new events for the BBC. He has written a numbAnthony Summers formerly covered wars and other world new events for the BBC. He has written a number of previous books, including HONEYTRAP, THE KENNEDY CONSPIRACY, an acclaimed study of the assassination of John F. Kennedy and - with co-author Robbyn Swan - THE ARROGANCE OF POWER, on Richard Nixon, SINATRA: THE LIFE and THE ELEVENTH DAY: THE DEFINITIVE ACCOUNT OF 9/11. THE ELEVENTH DAY was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and won the Golden Dagger for crime non-fiction. The Dagger was also awarded for THE KENNEDY CONSPIRACY, and films have been based on both GODDESS and HONEYTRAP. Summers is married, has six children and lives in Ireland.

From Library Journal:

Summers claims to have interviewed more than 600 people in the course of writing this book, and the effort shows in this exhaustiveand exhausting biography. Overall, the book is well written. Of the new material presented, the most provocative is Summers's assertion that Monroe's corpse was first discovered by Robert Kennedy and Peter Lawford. The reason for the confusion of facts about her death, says Summers, is that a coverup was conducted to hide Monroe's sexual involvement with both John and Robert Kennedy. Since Joe DiMaggio and Arthur Miller declined to be interviewed, this is not the definitive Monroe biography. Still, libraries that do not already have a surfeit of books on Monroe should find this a popular addition. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club featured alternates. John Smothers, Monmouth Cty.
