My story by Marilyn Monroe( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written at the height of her fame, but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, her marriage to Joe DiMaggio, and more. The Marilyn in these pages is a revelation: a gifted, intelligent, vulnerable woman who was far more complex than the unwitting sex siren she portrayed on screen. Lavishly illustrated with photos of Marilyn taken by renowned photographer Milton H. Greene, this special book celebrates the life and career of an American icon- from the unique perspective of the icon herself. -- Publisher description
