Bitter-sweet biography and memoir of one of the few Hollywood legends I will surely never ever meet. This memoir is a fascinating and captivating quick read (I read it this afternoon). Marilyn seemed to be so full of life, and happy too, during what turned out to be the last few weeks of her short life. She was taken away from us way too soon. It was eerie to read that the co-author of her memoir, George Barris, spoke to her the day before she was found dead, and that they made plans to meet and continue to work on their joint book only few days later. Would a suicidal person do this? I'm no expert, but I don't think so. He refuses to believe that she ended her life, and quite frankly, so do I.
