9780374158354: Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters

Through a series of never-before-published letters and diaries, as well as some rare photographs, Fragments explores the life and mind of an icon, Marilyn Monroe. A unique look into the private thoughts and reflections of one of Hollywood's brightest and most tragic stars.

Marilyn Monroe lived the Hollywood dream. Born into a difficult family situation, subjected to foster care and claims of illegitimacy, Norma Jean Baker managed to rise from her humble upbringing to international stardom with classic comic performances in Some Like It Hot and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and many others.

But the beautiful and charismatic Monroe was haunted by illness and psychological distress. After her unexpected death by overdose, Monroe has become one of the most intriguing and most beloved of Hollywood's fallen stars.

Fragments offers a sensitive and personal insight into the mysterious and tragic Marilyn Monroe through never-before-seen letters and documents, revealing the woman behind the legend.
