Marilyn among friends

Shaw Sam & Rosten Norman

The photographer Sam Shaw introduced Norman Rosten to Marilyn Monroe in 1955. Their relationship grew : Marilyn's analyst, Dr Ralph Greenson, described Rosten as one of her "closest friends". She married another of his friends, Arthur Miller, and from then saw a great deal of Norman and his wife Hedda.
Photographer Sam Shaw met Monroe on the set of "Viva Zapata" when she was an out-of-work contract player. Shaw was to take many famous photographs of Marilyn, but he too became her friend and over many years took the kind of photographs that only friends can.
As her closest friends, both the author and the photographer are uniquely placed to reveal the real Marilyn. This book conveys its subject with greater authority, candour and, above all, affection than any previous book.

Marilyn Monroe

Leaming Barbara

Barbara Leaming's book is a complex, sympathetic portrait that will forever change the way we view the most enduring icon of American sexuality.
Told for the first time in all its complexity, this is a compelling portrait of a woman at the centre of a drama with immensely high stakes, a drama in which some of the other players are some of the most fascinating characters from the worlds of movies, theatre and politics.
