Summary
  • T.O.C.: Prologue: 3 August 1962 / The Child: 1932-1938 / The Girl: 1942-1947 / The Woman: 1949-1953 / "Marilyn": 1953-1958 / The Afterlife: 1959-1962
  • "Joyce Carol Oates reimagines the inner, poetic, and spiritual life of Norma Jeane Baker and tells the story in Norma Jeane's own voice: startling, rich, and shattering. This most intimate portrait of Norma Jeane reveals a fragile, idiosyncratically gifted young woman who makes and remakes her identity, ever managing to survive against crushing odds to become the definition of stardom. Bit by bit, she tells her own epic story of how an emblematic American artist -perpetually conflicted and intensely driven - lost her way. Drawing on biographical and historical sources, Joyce Carol Oates evokes the distinct consciousness of the woman and the unsparing reflection of the myth." "Rich with psychological insight and irony, this narrative illumines Norma Jeane's lonely childhood, wrenching adolescence, and the creation of "Marilyn Monroe.""--BOOK JACKET
