Who was Marilyn? The most potent female sex symbol of the Twentieth Century? A superb comedic actress who was let down by poor material? An actress who failed to be taken seriously by most of the people who should have protected her? A woman who was used and abused by the men in her life including some of the most powerful on earth? Or a dizzy blonde with a great body who got lucky at the right time and in the right place? Born in Hollywood, albeit on the wrong side of the tracks, the young Marilyn had everything stacked against her. Yet she struggled against the adversity and became the most popular actress in the world. Marilyn became a star because of one film in which she co-starred with one of the great wonders of nature. The skin tight red dress and the wiggle in her walk didn't harm her prospects either. After Niagara the public loved her and followed her every move - two failed marriages, repeated miscarriages, battles with Twentieth Century Fox, classic films The Seven Year Itch, Some Like It Hot - right up to the horrible, tragic end. So what's in this Pocket Essential? As well as an introductory essay, each of Marilyn's films is reviewed and analysed. Not only that, but there's a handy reference section listing the best of the far weightier (and more expensive) books about her.

It is one of the greatest mysteries of the twentieth century. How did Marilyn Monroe die? Although no pills were found in her stomach during the autopsy, it was still documented in the Los Angeles coroner's report that she had swallowed sixty-four sleeping pills prior to her demise. In "Marilyn Monroe: A Case for Murder," biographer Jay Margolis presents the most thorough investigation of Marilyn Monroe's death to date and shares how he reached the definitive conclusion that she was murdered. Margolis meticulously dissects the events leading up to her death, revealing a major conspiracy and countless lies. In an exclusive interview with actress Jane Russell three months before her death, he reveals Russell's belief that Monroe was murdered and points the finger at the man she held responsible. While examining the actions of Peter Lawford, Bobby Kennedy, and Monroe's psychiatrist, Dr. Ralph Greenson, Margolis establishes a timeline of her last day alive that leads to shocking revelations. In August 1962, Marilyn Monroe's lifeless body was found on her bed, leaving all to wonder what really happened to the beautiful young starlet. "Marilyn Monroe: A Case for Murder" provides a fascinating examination of one of the most puzzling deaths of all time.

This powerful novel about a woman's self-discovery reinforces Lee Maracle's stature as one of the most important First Nations writers in North America.

By discovering her own culture's ways and listening to the natural world, Marilyn begins to heal her deep-rooted hurt and gradually become reconciled with her estranged daughters. Here is a moving work about First Nations people in the modern world, and the importance of courage, truth, and reconciliation.
