Such a revelation about MM (Marilyn Monroe)

Sarah Churchwell has really done her research on Marilyn Monroe. Writes very collegiately, but understandably. Takes you through many biographies and fictional writings about Marilyn and all of the suppositions about who this woman really was. I have been a fan of Marilyn's for just about all of my life and never realized that so many opposing things had been written and had never really proved. The author proceeds to debunk a lot of stuff that people may take for fact, but in fact is never proven. Author writes well and, again, never states what she thinks are the facts.
"But we all believe in the Marilyn we choose, make up the Marilyn we require. We desire the Marilyn we want to have, or think we deserve; we identify with the Marilyn we think we are, or want to be." Sarah Churchwell
