Reviews

Praise for Marilyn Monroe: The Private Life of a Public Icon

"This biography from Casillo fleshes out the icon, telling Monroe's tale in great and often harrowing detail and showing how the notorious blond pin-up was smarter and shrewder than most realize, yet just as tragic as we knew."
New York Post
, "Most Unforgettable Books of 2018"


"A refreshing take on the complex and talented Monroe . . . .A+."
Tulsa Book Review

"Casillo explores the myriad facets of Monroe's personality with a respectful but incisive eye . . . an intricately nuanced portrait of this misunderstood idol...A worthy addition to the Monroe canon."
-Booklist

"A well-written examination of the mystique of a woman who still fascinates decades after her untimely death."
Publishers Weekly

"A deep dive into the model and screen legend's glamorous but troubled life . . . [Casillo] pays particularly sympathetic attention to her emotional journey . . . a compelling exploration of a beguiling film icon's life."
Kirkus Reviews

"Extraordinary. . . . Castillo's sympathetic and psychologically nuanced Marilyn Monroe bio is compulsively readable and well researched."
Shelf Awareness

"After all I've seen and heard about Marilyn Monroe, this book is a revelation, an earthy, empathic vision of a real woman who happened to be an ethereal goddess. Getting to know Charles Casillo's Marilyn made me feel a level of identification and understanding that was devastating and thrilling."
Mary Gaitskill
