Publisher's Summary

No one looked like her. No one walked like her. No one talked like her. Sexy, yet vulnerable, and unexpectedly talented, she was no ordinary screen goddess. Few really knew her. What others wrote, she called, "Lies! Lies! Lies!" Here, at last, is Marilyn Monroe's account.

On June 1, 1962, Marilyn's 36th birthday, famed photographer and reporter George Barris visited Marilyn on the set of what would be her final, unfinished, film. They had met eight years earlier, became friends, and planned to do a picture book and autobiography. Now the time was right. For the next six weeks, Barris photographed and interviewed the actress. "Don't believe anything you read about me except this...." she told Barris. And so she began to confide the truth about herself.

A nice listen.

Excellent performance; makes you believe you're actually listening to Marilyn tell her very brief story.

insight from her on the real reason she split with Joe and context for the oft-quoted remark on Arthur Miller being at his best when he's a writer.
