Synopsis: Titillating, fun, and sad--Marilyn is all of that in this unique anthology from the people who brought you Mondo Elvis and Mondo Barbie. Mondo Marilyn brings together such notable authors as Clive Barker, Judy Grahn, Charles Bukowski, John Rechy, and Doris Grumbach, among others, to look at her life, her death, and her life after death.
From Publishers Weekly:
The editors who gave us the entertaining Mondo Elvis and Mondo Barbie anthologies have set their sites on another pop icon: Marilyn Monroe, the superstar who captivated millions with her blend of overt sexuality and wholesome, girl-next-door appeal. Working with her well-documented public persona and the sketchy details of her private one, the eclectic group of writers and poets assembled here explore Marilyn's desires and fears?and the effect she had on so many. What-ifs abound: Doris Grumbach's excerpt from The Missing Person features a woman "pulled from the red-running stream of death and nothingness into some saving place." Most notable, however, are the works that give the eternally vulnerable Marilyn new power: In Judy Grahn's "I Have Come to Claim," a woman vows to requite Marilyn's death for all womankind; in Clive Barker's piece from The Son of Celluloid, Marilyn is a smiling seductress who takes her own gruesome revenge on men. This artfully executed collection seeks to provide the reader with a sometimes funny, but more often sad portrait of a woman who, it seems, continues to be exploited in death as much as she was in life.
