Synopsis: From the "New York Times "bestselling author of "Bobby and Jackie" comes the riveting, true story of the passionate, volatile relationship between baseball great Joe DiMaggio and Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe.
When Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe eloped in January of 1954, they became an international sensation. "Joe and Marilyn "reveals the true inside story of these two iconic figures whose marital troubles were Hollywood legend." "Though their marriage only lasted nine months, they remained close until Monroe's mysterious death in 1962 at the age of thirty-six. He had a half-dozen red roses delivered three times a week to her crypt for twenty years. According to Heymann, DiMaggio remained devoted to her until his own death in 1999.
An intimate, sensitive, shocking, and richly detailed look at two of America's biggest stars, Heymann delivers the expertise and passion for his subjects that his many fans so love. Based on extensive archival research and personal interviews with family and friends, "Joe and Marilyn" offers great insight into this famously tragic romance. Sixteen pages of striking photos accompany this unforgettable love.
