Description - Marilyn by Norman Mailer

Norman Mailer's acclaimed biography of Hollywood's iconic leading lady, available for the first time in mass-market paperback on the 50th anniversary of her death

'Genius' The New York Times

In 1973, Norman Mailer published Marilyn, his celebrated in-depth account of the life of Marilyn Monroe, as a glossy, fully illustrated coffee-table tome. His work was immediately acclaimed - and an enduring bestseller, rumoured to have sold more copies than any of his other works except The Naked and the Dead. Yet, until now, it has never been made available in an accessible mass-market paperback edition.

This is one of America's greatest writers taking on the legend of one of Hollywood's greatest stars.
