Collection of Marilyn Monroe's writing to be released

Marilyn-MonroeImage Credit: Everett CollectionThe candle in the wind just keeps burning. Farrar, Straus and Giroux has announced that they plan to release a collection of Marilyn Monroe’s own writings. Fragments will include poems, correspondence, rare photos, as well as reproductions of documents handwritten by the blond bombshell herself. It is set to hit bookstores this fall.

The book will purportedly show the seldom seen facets of the breathy pneumatic icon, who was in actuality a whole lot smarter than her coquettish image suggested. What do you think, Shelf-Lifers? Are you interested in getting a glimpse of the Norma Jean behind the Marilyn Monroe?

    “I see London, I see France…”
    A book of her writings called “My Story” has already been released but I’m sure this will be interesting too. Marilyn the woman is gone, but her image and memory will never die.

    Let me be the first to buy it…I love her…beautiful and smart, however; tragic life story.

    This is wonderful! Unfortunately, I think she was only recognized as the beauty (which she certainly was, obviously), when there was much more depth to her as a person. I would love to read this and get some insight into who she was off camera and out of the spotlight.

    I am sooo excited about this – I literally collect books on Marilyn Monroe… and yes, as stated above I’ve read her own writing before. In her memoir/autobiography “My Story.”

    Most. Overrated. Actress. Ever.

      I wouldn’t say she rates all that highly as an actress, Katy.

      Then again, maybe you’re right.

    Does this unfortunate person really need to be embarrassed any further?

    Rhymes do not make poetry.
    Not even a sincere intent makes poetry.
    Poetry makes poetry.

    And this poor girl was all… prose.

    Not necessarily a bad thing to be (evidently!). But let’s not make her into something she was not.

    Then again, that’s the one thing she was really good at.
