A comprehensive and meticulously researched biography, Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed is published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of her death. Following a series of sensationalist biographies of Marilyn Monroe in recent years, this essential volume brings an important and fresh perspective to the many controversies in her life, and will serve as an essential sourcebook of documentary and photographic evidence. Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed reveals a different side of Marilyn from the celluloid invention. Michelle Morgan has interviewed every single person accessible who knew or was related to Marilyn in any way, including the main players in her life – family and friends, as well as work colleagues, and more casual acquaintances. The author has also discovered a wealth of new information about Marilyn’s early years and those people involved in her upbringing, such her school friends and foster parents. There are also 40 pages dedicated to her trip to England and the making of ‘The Prince and The Showgirl.’
By talking to people never interviewed before, Michelle Morgan has succeeded in presenting a very personal and human side of Marilyn Monroe, which has never been seen before. With 416 pages of text and 16 pages of rare photographs, Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed will undoubtedly serve as the ultimate Marilyn biography. Michelle Morgan is a life-long fan of Marilyn and was President of the UK Marilyn Monroe fan club for 16 years. Her first book, Marilyn’s Addresses, (1995) is still sought by collectors around the world, while her second, Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed, (hardback) was published to extremely positive reviews in 2007 and included articles in The Sunday Times, The New York Post, Woman & Home, Red and Empire.
