There are many Marilyns: sex goddess and innocent child, crafty manipulator and dumb blonde, liberated woman and tragic loner. nbsp; The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe reviews the stories that have framed the greatest Hollywood legend, all the while revealing us to ourselves: our conflicted views on women, our tormented sexual attitudes, our ambivalence about success, our fascination with self-destruction. nbsp; In incisive and passionate prose, critic Sarah Churchwell uncovers the shame, belittlement, and anxiety that we bring to the story of a woman we supposedly adore, and, in the process, rescues a Marilyn Monroe who is far more complicated and credible than the one we think we know.
