Dr. Lois Banner is much more than a feminist! She is a scholar that probes beneath mirages and public image, and for Marilyn Monroe, one of the most misunderstood icons in HollyWood, Dr. Banner has written a biography that's not only thought-provoking  but enchanting as well.

Through this meticulous research, Banner refutes much of the mythology surrounding Monroe, offering a depth to her story that has never been fully told, and exposing new facets of her personality and facts surrounding her life—the childhood foster homes and sexual abuse, Hollywood persona, multiple marriages, Kennedy access, physical and mental health issues, sex and drug addictions, and chain of events leading up to her tragic death.
