Marilyn Monroe is an icon for millions around the world, young and old alike. Now a comprehensive timeline is available for Marilyn’s life. Track the superstar’s path to icon status through her success and failure, her husbands and lovers, and the general ups and downs of everyday life.
April VeVea adds another book to the must haves on Marilyn Monroe. Not a biography as such but it does contain a biographical timeline, starting in 1926 and ending in 1962, it lists all the known things that Marilyn did on particular days, so if you wanted to check out a particular date, you just open the book to the correct year and see if anything is recorded.
Obviously not every date in her life is accounted for, but some of the dates included do lay to rest some of the false claims made over the years.
As this is a self-published book, there are spelling mistakes in it and there are some formatting errors, however the content more than makes up for it, there are things included here that I never knew, and I have been collecting books and information on Marilyn for over 20 years, that alone shows the level of research conducted by the author.
I gave this 5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads
