Analyzes previous biographies of Marilyn Monroe, attempts to portray her complex personality, and discusses her career as an actress

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From Library Journal:

Arguing that "to comprehend the complexity of Monroe . . . entails comprehending the complexity of ourselves ," McCann surveys and criticizes what has been written about her from a self-professed feminist perspective. Though well intentioned, his attempt compassionately to reconstruct her image"to cancel out the other male texts, to consciously counteract the distortions fostered by men's uncritical styles"frequently founders in unnecessarily vague and often jargon-ridden prose that will try the patience of most readers. Those who stick it through will discover that a briefer essay could have done the job more concisely. Marshall Deutelbaum, Purdue Univ., W . Lafayette, Ind.
