The Secret Tapes of Marilyn MonroeLarge Print - 2004
Marilyn Monroe's death in August 1962, apparently a suicide, shocked the world. With fame, fortune, powerful friends and lovers, and the world at her feet, why would she have killed herself? Looking back at thousands of documents, some of them never published before, Matthew Smith argues strongly for a startling new version of events. His argument is based not only on these documents and on the complete forensic evidence, but also on the secret, confidential tapes Marilyn made for her psychiatrist in the weeks leading up to her death - tapes that portray a woman in charge of her life and looking forward to a busy, bright future. Here, from the transcripts of these tapes, are the most private thoughts of Marilyn Monroe.
