ICON: THE LIFE, TIMES, & FILMS OF MARILYN MONROE (SECOND EDITION) by Gary Vitacco-Robles

Goddess . . . legend . . . icon. You thought you knew her, but never before like this.

Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) survived a childhood marked by abuse, neglect, and chaos to become a psychological, cultural, and spiritual phenomenon of the twentieth century. Her remarkable life, brilliant film career, and posthumous legend have been deconstructed in over 600 biographies.

Psychotherapist and author Gary Vitacco-Robles reframes and redefines the fascinating woman behind the iconic image through an analysis of her psyche and an appreciation of her film and stage performances. After a decade of meticulous research, Vitacco-Robles offers a treasure trove of facts comprehensively documenting each year of Monroe's inspiring life within the context of her tumultuous times and through her relationships with literary, entertainment, and political figures.

Monroe is resurrected a half-century after her tragic death in this detailed and sensitive biography which intelligently explores her passionate desires: to be loved, become a serious actress, and have a family.

Based upon interviews, diaries, and personal files, and void of sensationalism, this biography dispels many myths and reveals the ultimate truth about Hollywood's most charismatic, beloved, and enduring star.
