"You Are The First One I'm Telling This To. I'll Tell You All. . ." No one looked like her. No one walked like her. No one talked like her. Sexy yet vulnerable, and unexpectedly talented, she was no ordinary screen goddess. Few really knew her. What others wrote, she called "Lies! Lies! Lies!" Here, at last, is Marilyn Monroe's account, in her own singular voice. It was June 1, 1962, her thirty-sixth birthday. Famed photographer and reporter George Barris had come to see Marilyn on the set of what would be her final, unfinished, film. They had met eight years earlier, became friends, and planned to do a picture book and autobiography. Now the time was right. For the next six weeks Barris photographed and interviewed the actress. "Don't believe anything you read about me except this. . ." she told Barris. And so she began to confide the truth about herself. Barris last talked to Marilyn on August 3, less than twenty-four hours before she was found dead in her apartment. At their last meeting, she was effervescent and eager to embrace life. "I feel I'm just getting started," she said. Barris firmly believes that murder, not suicide, caused Marilyn's untimely end and he could not bring himself to publish her thoughts or the haunting photos of that summer--until now. Marilyn: Her Life In Her Own Words is a candid memoir enhanced by 150 black-and-white and color photos, many never before published. A highlight is "The Last Photo Shoot" where Marilyn appears luminous without makeup on the beach at Santa Monica and in a North Hollywood house. This moving book brings Marilyn Monroe back--beautiful, flirtatious, and sweet as a first kiss--for one rare and radiant farewell. George Barris has worked as a photojournalist for many of the country's major magazines, from Life to Cosmopolitan. He is the co-author (with Gloria Steinem) of Marilyn-Norma Jean, and contributed to Norman Mailer's book, Marilyn. He lives in California.

I decided to write my memoirs so my grandkids and friends might enjoy some of the adventures I had while I was in the Air Force. I not only did something interesting, I did something very exciting. I had a great life growing up. I had wonderful parents and I was allowed do a lot of things most kids did not get to do. I always wanted to be a pilot, so one day while I was in college I stopped by the Air Force recruiter, to see what I would have to do to become a pilot for them. The recruiter gave me some tests and I passed them. I then took a physical, but I did not pass the eye test. I decided to stay in school. When I passed the test to get into the Air Force, the recruiters would not let me go. One day during the Christmas break he called me and said he could get me into weather if I would enlist before the end of the year. I was tired of school, so I signed up. I did not tell my parents until the day before I was to leave for basic training and that was a big mistake. They were very upset I was leaving school for the Air Force. I had already signed up, so I had to go. When I got to basic training the T.I. thought it was very funny when I told him what I was going to do in the Air Force. He told me they would decide what I would do and to just forget what my recruiter had said. Up to that time in my life, I was a big shot and I did what I wanted to do. No one was going to stop me. The Air Force changed my thinking about that very quickly. I became a government issue [G I] and they owned me. After basic I was sent to school in the intelligence field. I hated that, so I asked to be transferred and I ended up at Carswell AFB, as a fire fighter. My time at Carswell AFB, was some of the most exciting times I had in my life. I went on hundreds of emergences and chased a bunch of aircraft down the runway in my time at the base, but I am only going to tell you about the ones I can remember. I do want to say these stories are how I remember them; I hope they are how they happened. To be honest, I did not like everything in the Air Force. I complained like all G I's, I found out the world did not evolve around me. My life in the Air Force was a good one, I was glad I got to do it. I grew up a lot during my short career I was never a hero. My mission was to put out fires, and that is what the Air Force paid me to do. I hope I earned my pay. I did learn in the Fire Department to make every day count as it could be your last one.
