Baker & Taylor In honor of the fortieth anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death, a provocative collection of essays--by such notable authors as Gloria Steinem, Joyce Carol Oates, Clare Boothe Luce, and Molly Haskell--sheds new light on the legendary movie actress and her lasting impact on American culture and imagination. Original. 20,000 first printing.
Simon and Schuster No star in any genre has affected the world as deeply or has lasted as long without fading as Marilyn Monroe. This thought-provoking and wide-ranging collection of essays examines the undiminished incandescence of Marilyn Monroe -- the impact she has had on our culture, the evolution of her legend since her death, and what she tells us now about our lives and times -- and includes previously unpublished work from some of America's best writers, such as: Joyce Carol Oates, Alice Elliot Dark, Albert Mobilo, Marge Piercy, Lore Segal, Lisa Shea, and many more. From her troubled family beginnings to the infamous $13 million auction held at Christie's in New York City, All the Available Light paints an unforgettable portrait of Marilyn as you've never seen her before. This extremely rare cover photo was taken c. 1954, on the set of The Seven Year Itch.
