Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe BooksLast month marked the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death. Fascination with Monroe hasn’t diminished over the past five decades as you can see by taking a look at your grocery store newsstand, browsing Pinterest, or watching Smash — a TV show about the creation of a Broadway musical about Monroe. To mark the anniversary of her tragic death, several new novels, biographies, and photos have been released over the last few years – including memoirs about time spent with Ms. Monroe and novels reimagining her final days. Below is a list of a few of the recently published works available around the county.

Nonfiction:

Fiction:

  • The Empty Glass by J.I. Baker – A gritty, noir novel about the investigation surrounding Marilyn Monroe’s death.
  • Misfit by Adam Braver – A novelization of Monroe’s last days spent in Lake Tahoe and intertwines events from her childhood, her marriages, and filming The Misfits.
  • The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend Marilyn Monroe by Andrew O’Hagan – A fictional “biography” of Ms. Monroe told from the perspective of her dog, Maf.
