Norman Mailer/Bert Stern: Marilyn Monroe by Norman Mailer


Monroe by Mailer and SternTASCHEN has paired Mailer's unique text (his 1973 biography Marilyn) with Bert Stern's extraordinary photographs—broadly regarded as essentially the most intimate ever taken of Monroe—to create a becoming tribute to the lady who, at the time of her death in 1962, used to be the world's most famous, a symbol of glamour and eroticism for an entire generation. However though she was feted and cherished by her public, her personal lifestyles was that of a little girl misplaced, desperate to find love and security. Mailer's Marilyn is lovely, tragic, and complex. As Mailer displays upon her life—from her bleak childhood through to the mysterious instances of her death—she emerges as a logo of the strange decade during which she reigned as Hollywood's greatest female celebrity.

This e book, conceived by Lawrence Schiller, Mailer’s collaborator on five works, combines the author’s masterful text with Stern's penetrating pictures of the 36-yr-previous Marilyn. Photographed for Vogue magazine over three days at the Bel-Air Lodge, Marilyn had by no means allowed such unfettered get entry to, nor had she seemed so breathtakingly gorgeous. Six weeks later, mysteriously, she was lifeless. In this daring synthesis of literary traditional and legendary portrait sitting, Mailer and Stern elevate the veils of misunderstanding surrounding Monroe—the lady, the superstar, the sex image—and supply profound insight into an iconic figure whose real persona is still an enigma even lately.

  • Translations of Mailer's text are available in German (the translation dates from 1992) and now for the primary time in Spanish and French
  • Restricted to a total of 1,962 numbered copies signed by way of Bert Stern, this e book is on hand as Collector's Variation (No. 251-1,962), and also in two Art Versions of a hundred twenty five copies every (No. 1-250).
