Marilyn Monroe : The Complete Last Sitting The more than 2,500 shots that make up this monumental classic tribute to actress Marilyn Monroe were taken by renowned fashion photographer Bert Stern over the course of a three-day sitting-the last time Marilyn would pose in front of a camera. Six weeks later, the actress was found dead in her home. Even despite the ominous facts surrounding this sitting, the images it produced project a haunting, almost dreamlike quality unlike any photographs ever taken of the starlet. In front of the camera, Marilyn was known to possess an incredible chameleon-like ability to transform herself into whatever role she was meant to play. In these pages she is goddess, siren, child, woman, femme fatale and dream date. Yet there is an air of desperation about these photos as well. In his fascinating foreword to the book, Bert Stern looks back on that momentous sitting, offering a revealing, naked portrait of Marilyn the person-of a vulnerable, confused woman who although at the apex of her career, had relinquished control of her life-and of the fashion world of the early 1960s, with its new openness towards drugs, sex, and art.

The Marilyn Encyclopedia The meticulous cross-referencing makes The Marilyn Encyclopedia an extremely enjoyable browser's read, allowing the reader to hop from Marilyn's disdain for underwear to her working relationship with John Huston to the fact that she never had much trouble with gambling--all with the flip of a page. This encyclopedia of course contains a rich assortment of photos: posed studio portraits, pinups, and candid shots vie for space throughout the tome. Despite his obvious devotion as a fan, Victor is remarkably evenhanded in his choice of the quotes and anecdotes sprinkled throughout the book. The reader cannot help but be left with the impression that, for all her magical appeal, Monroe may well have been a trying person to deal with on a day-to-day basis. This is the perfect book for the dedicated fan who wants to know everything--no, really, everything--about Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe and the Camera Whether posing kittenishly in a pinup shot or dramatically for a classic portrait, this shy, vulnerable, enormously insecure woman was transformed by the lens. Marilyn posed for nearly every major photographer of her day, and this pictoral chronicle of her affair with the camera, featuring shots from Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alred Eisentaedt, Elliott Erwitt, Philippe Halsman, Weegee, and thirty other artists, brings together the most beautiful and unusual images available. From her early days as a "fashion model" for ads and pinup calendars, through the film stills that follow her career as a minor actress and then major starlit, to the now-famous portraits by Avedon, and Cecil Beaton, as well as the paparazzi shots from the hordes of photographers who trailed her every move-Marilyn emerges in all her many moods: girlish and gay, sexy and serious, glamorous

The Marilyn Diaries The premise of this new work of fiction is that the diaries that Marilyn Monroe were rumored to have kept in the last years of her life have been found and are being published for the first time - so we are reading her life story as if told in her own words. It is a fascinating tale of triumph and pain, beauty and tragedy, told against a backdrop of a golden age in Hollywood history, the 50s and 60s. It has a cast of characters that includes John and Jackie Kennedy, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Peter and Pat Lawford, Robert Kennedy, Natalie Wood, Warren Beatty and many others. The difference between this book and other recent works of fiction about the blonde actress is that in this novel Marilyn Monroe comes across as a living, breathing human being - not a cardboard caricature based on characters from her films. This is, however, a book for adults.
