Stylish Readers: Marilyn
Style Icon, Pin-up, Screen-star, Legend ... Avid Reader? Marilyn Monroe might not have been known for her reading, but read she did (um, hi, she did marry a playwright). Reading everything from biographies of Abraham Lincoln to Milton, Hemingway to Beckett, she even had her own 400 volume library! You can find out more about this side of Marilyn in the book "Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters", written by Marilyn herself, but collected and published by Stanley Buchthal & Bernard Comment.
Just when you thought Marilyn couldn't be any more fabulous.
