    DescriptionFollowing a number of sensationalist biographies of Marilyn Monroe in recent years, this comprehensive, meticulously researched volume brings an important fresh perspective on the many controversies in her life. It is essential reading for anyone interested in Marilyn Monroe and the Golden Age of Hollywood. This new edition of "Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed" has been thoroughly revised and expanded to include an additional 60,000 words. It reveals a very different Marilyn from the celluloid invention. For the first volume, Michelle Morgan interviewed approximately 100 people who knew or were related to Marilyn in some way, including key figures in her life - family and friends, as well as work colleagues, and more casual acquaintances. This new edition includes information gleaned from many more interviews, as well as additional family background and many new stories. "Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed" is the most comprehensive Monroe biography yet. It covers her trip to England in great detail and gives the true story behind the making of "The Prince and The Showgirl". Praise for the 2007 hardback illustrated edition of "Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed": "A gorgeous collection offering a fascinating insight into Monroe's personal life". ("Woman & Home"). "A touching portrayal of the star in her more private moments". ("Empire"). "This candid and often surprising study of the screen legend provides another view of her". ("Red").
