|""Blonde" is the fictionalized story of Marilyn Monroe. The author uses a unique method of writing to give an emotional, sympathetic and almost truthful point of view of the actresses struggles in her life."
Amanda Goodwin, Resident Scholar
|"This is a fictionalized version of the life of Marilyn Monroe as imagined by Joyce Carol Oates, America's premier woman of letters. It follows Monroe from her life as an abandoned child in California through her achievement as the world's biggest sex symbol. This is a great read for Marilyn fans who are used to reading the usual biographies. Oates deals with her subject with accute sensitivity and imagination, and you feel like you're right in the head of this tragic star."
