Description: Été 2012. Nouveau-Mexique. Un couple de voyageurs égaré sur une route déserte est témoin d'un incendie. Dans les décombres fumants, ils trouvent un cadavre carbonisé et des journaux intimes dont certaines pages ont échappé aux flammes. Avant d'alerter les autorités, ils commencent à les lire. Leur auteur raconte sa vie de reclus avec une compagne qu'il qualifie de "monstre". Il partage des souvenirs liés à Marilyn Monroe, dévoile des faits et des confidences que seul un proche de l'actrice était en mesure de connaître. Cette découverte va mener le couple de surprise en surprise et révéler sur la star ce qui ne pouvait être dit jusqu'à aujourd'hui. 
À partir des faits réels, des archives fédérales, des témoignages, des rapports d'enquêtes et des expertises médicales, Philip Le Roy nous emmène, avec ce thriller haletant, aux côtés de Marilyn Monroe et présente une thèse plausible de sa disparition, aussi stupéfiante qu'inédite.

Description: This explosive and historic must-have book will change the entire way readers view the life and death of Marilyn Monroe. Written by relatives of Marilyn Monroe, the authors painstakingly unravel the myths that have suffocated her legacy for over 50 years. These myths have been regurgitated in biography after biography, depicting Marilyn as an orphan girl and leaving her expansive lineage out of the equation. The facts support that Marilyn was surrounded with family, and many members were upstanding citizens who contributed greatly to their communities. However, Hollywood, Marilyn’s New York “friends,” and her therapists insulated Marilyn in order to profit off of the ultimate “Cinderella Story.” That story was the myth of Marilyn Monroe, which was created to suffocate the truth behind Norma Jeane Mortenson and her family history. It was eventually this forged fairy-tale path and this cast of characters that squeezed funds out of Marilyn Monroe, as well as the final breaths out of the legendary star. The heirs of the opportunists who fleeced Marilyn of both her life and earnings still garner monies through her name today.

The Author: Jason Edward Kennedy is Marilyn Monroe’s second cousin once removed (his grandmother Rebecca Esther (Hogan) Fritz was Gladys Monroe’s first cousin). Getting the word out about Marilyn and investigating into the Cinderella myths holds a great importance to him because the cast of characters (and descendents of theirs) in Marilyn’s financial extortion and murder continue to perpetuate the myths that keep Marilyn’s legacy in their corner for their own profit. Jason was featured in the November 3, 2014 CLOSER Weekly Magazine: “Marilyn's Hidden Diary Reveals: It Wasn't Suicide EXCLUSIVE: Marilyn Monroe's Friends and Family Talk About Her Mysterious and Tragic Death” Jason also served honorably for four years in the United States Navy as an Aircraft Electrician and Helicopter Plane Captain. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Cultural Anthropology from the University of California, Santa Barbara. He also graduated from the Prehospital Care program at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA - Emergency Medical Technician. Jennifer Jean Miller has held a love of writing since childhood and turned it into her career almost a decade ago. She is an investigative reporter, known for her compelling, in-depth and objective features, with a quest to not leave stones unturned. Jennifer was awarded the Media and Entertainment Award from the New Jersey Governor’s Council for Mental Health Stigma in 2010 for objective and sensitive reporting on mental health issues. Jennifer runs the news site InsideScene.com and has worked for news outlets including Straus News and Reuters (with Reuters she was the State Director for New Jersey for the Reuters/Ipsos Election Reporting Program). As an Investigative Reporter, she was interviewed for an Oxygen Network episode of Snapped: Killer Couples. Jennifer has been also interviewed about Marilyn Monroe, appearing on segment on German TV, and also for the upcoming documentary What Ever Happened to Norma Jeane? She has already penned two books, Marilyn Monroe & Joe DiMaggio – Love In Japan, Korea & Beyond, as well as Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America Book, Stanhope and Byram. As a lifetime admirer of Marilyn Monroe’s, sharing the truth about her life and death have both been paramount to her. Jennifer holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the State University of New York at Cortland in French Secondary Education with a minor in Political Science. She also studied at the University of Neuchâtel in Switzerland.

Prix éditeur: 5,68 Euros

Ou le commander ? sur amazon

Description: *Includes pictures of Marilyn and important people and scenes.
*Includes quotes about her life and career.
*Includes a bibliography for further reading.
“The truth is I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't. When they found this out, they would blame me for disillusioning them and fooling them.” – Marilyn Monroe
A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history’s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors’ American Legends series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of America’s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known.
Few actresses lived their lives in the public eye more than Marilyn Monroe, and yet her life remains shrouded in mystery to this day. While it is common knowledge that Marilyn’s life is a rags-to-riches story, her life is bookended by hazy details surrounding her early life and even more mysterious death.
Who was Norma Jean Baker? Who was Marilyn Monroe? The unknown has contributed to the mythology that has since become part of her legacy, and she nurtured it. Marilyn was adept at constructing a fanciful mystique about her early years, and it’s become all but impossible to disentangle the truth from the narrative that Marilyn helped establish. Fittingly, even though Marilyn is instantly recognizable and still one of film’s greatest icons, her films remain unfamiliar to the vast majority of the public.
Most people have some preconception of Marilyn’s film persona, seeing her as the “dumb blonde” without a brain who existed only in order to be gazed upon. However, one of the essential questions concerning Marilyn’s life involves the accuracy of the “Marilyn stereotype”; is the “dumb blonde” identity an accurate descriptor of her film roles, and how does it compare to Marilyn’s personality off of the movie set? Given how famous Marilyn Monroe was and continues to be, it’s remarkable that so many people know so little about her life and career.
What is known is that Marilyn Monroe was America’s ultimate sex symbol in the 20th century, in part because she came of age in the wake of World War II and became famous during the conservative era of the 1950s. She appeared in just two films in the 1960s, prior to her premature death in August 1962, and there is a wide gulf between the brevity of her career and the impact that she made on American culture throughout the 1950s. Marilyn’s death left everyone to speculate where her career would have gone in the 1960s, but it’s probably safe to guess she wouldn’t be the icon she remains today.
American Legends: The Life of Marilyn Monroe comprehensively examines the starlet’s life and films, exploring the controversies and the ways in which her life and works are mutually informative. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about Marilyn Monroe like you never have before, in no time at all.

Description: In the early-morning hours of August 5, 1962, Los Angeles County deputy coroner Ben Fitzgerald arrives at the home of the world’s most famous movie star, now lying dead in her bedroom. There he discovers The Book of Secrets—Marilyn Monroe’s diary—revealing a doomed love affair with a man she refers to only as “The General.” In the following days, Ben unravels a cover-up that implicates the Kennedys, the Mafia, and the CIA. Soon the sinister and surreal accounts recorded in The Book bleed into Ben’s own life, and he finds himself trapped—like Monroe—in a deepening paranoid conspiracy. A knockout combination of fact and legend, The Empty Glass is a riveting debut thriller.

La véritable histoire de l'assassinat de Marilyn Monroe

La véritable histoire de l'assassinat de Marilyn Monroe
Auteur: John Barnett, Traduction de Patrick de Friberg

book_laveritableDate de sortie: 20 août 2013
Relié 312 pages
Langue: français

Éditeur: Publie Papier
Prix éditeur: 15,98 Euros

Présentation de l'éditeur: Le privé Jack Pasolsky est bien marri quand la maîtresse de Marilyn Monroe déboule dans son bureau, que la soeur de Marilyn Monroe le pend par les pieds par-dessus un balcon chic d'un gratte-ciel de Central Park, que Robert Kennedy lui ment et que la mafia le poursuit. Tout cela et bien d'autres calamités encore qui ont pour but unique d'empêcher la découverte de la vérité sur l'assassinat de celle qui ne porte que du Chanel Nº5 sur la peau quand elle dort au couvent de la Miséricorde, ce qui est une absolue absurdité. Ah, oui, j'allais oublier: Joe, la fille de John Barnett et néanmoins la secrétaire de Pasolsky, possède l'une des plus belles plasties de la galaxie (même si, en dehors de notre bonne vieille terre, les arrière-trains extra-terrestres y sont à militer pour l'abstinence éternelle).

Description: Hollywood Sketchbook is the first volume published on costume design illustration for the movies. This groundbreaking book celebrates one hundred years of the costume designers' and costume illustrators' contributions to the art of cinematic storytelling. Costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis offers us a unique perspective on the art and importance of the costume drawing. During her years of practice and research, Professor Landis has discovered a wealth of never-before-seen original sketches, published here for the first time, along with a comprehensive array of first-person anecdotes from collectors, archivists, illustrators, and designers. Whether the film, costume designer, or star was significant or successful did not factor into the criteria for choosing the sketches in this book. Every drawing had a chance to be included on its own merit as a work of art. Featuring a comprehensive introduction that contextualizes the rigors of costume design and a filmography that details the career highlights of each artist, Hollywood Sketchbook is the perfect gift for any lover of fine art, costume design, and the movies.
