I had a weird preoccupation with Marilyn Monroe in high school. I thought she made the tragic blonde bodacious, and I adored the notion that someone with curves could still remain a sex icon today.

This book will ruin you if you love Norma Jean Baker.

She was sexually abused in the film industry and manic depressive throughout most of her life. It is really very sad the life she led... I wish she could see what she has become.
