4.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile addition, 14 April 2003
A refreshing change from the usual biographies/conspiracy theory books on Monroe, this book explores the image and icon of Marilyn Monroe in popular culture.
This book is a really useful and interesting addition to the collection of any Marilyn fan. However it also makes great reading for anyone with an interest in film or cultural studies as it covers a wide range of material and theories touching on feminist theory, the rise and fall of the studio star system and how Monroe was viewed by her contemporaries.
It is the sort of book that requires concentration as it is written in fairly academic language, however it is divided into independent sections, so you can dip into the areas that take your fancy, rather than read it cover to cover.
It is a thoughtful, well researched and sympathetically produced book, and the author obviously has great respect for Monroe as an actress and a unique individual.
There are also some nice black and white, lesser known images of Marilyn Monroe.
