Marilyn Monroe is one of the world's legends. She was one of the most famous, most beautiful and most talented women ever to have lived and her face will continue to be recognised the world over for decades to come. From her beginnings as a magazine cover girl, Marilyn soon took Hollywood by storm and became America's sweetheart. Her films, such as "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", "Some Like it Hot and Niagara" have become legendary in cinematic history, with Marilyn's beguiling screen presence never failing to draw the crowds. Marilyn was always ready for the cameras with a smile, but few people were afforded a glimpse of the real Marilyn, the character behind the star. Author James Haspiel was one of those privileged few who knew her personally, and whose photograph was found by her bed on the day she died. In these pages he reveals the hauntingly evocative tale of his Marilyn. He tells unique stories of her talent, fragility and her love and respect for life. Packed with photographs, personal letters and documents that will enthral Marilyn and movie fans alike, it is simply the ultimate tribute to one of the world's best-loved and most tragic icons.

James Haspiel was a personal friend of Marilyn Monroe and he has kept an incredible collection of personal items that belonged to the Diva. He has also advised authors and journalists on the life of Marilyn and the real personality behind the iconic mask, as well as offering first hand information to several televised documentaries.From Library Journal:
In 1954, 16-year-old fan Haspiel received his boldly requested kiss on the cheek from Marilyn Monroe. This began a friendly association that was to last until Monroe's untimely death. Haspiel deftly recounts his experiences tracking and photographing "Mazzie" everywhere from glamorous movie events to quiet outings with friends. Through subsequent moments shared with her in cabs, crowds, lobbies, on street corners, and the like he reverently observes the real woman behind the headlines. This is not a biography, although it does contain knowledgeable data on Monroe's life and career. Rather, it is a sensitive reminiscence from an illuminating perspective. Diverse photographs, clippings, and memorabilia are of particular appeal. For circulating libraries.
