Three legends. "Monroe" by Mailer and Stern. Now TASCHEN has paired Mailer's original text with Bert Stern's photographs from the legendary "Last Sitting" - widely considered the most intimate photographs of Monroe ever taken - to create a fitting tribute to the woman who, at the time of her death in 1962, was the world's most famous, a symbol of glamour and criticism for an entire generation. But though she was feted and adored by her public, her private life was that of a little girl lost, desperate to find love and security. Mailer's Marilyn is beautiful, tragic, and complex. As Mailer reflects upon her life - from her bleak childhood through to the mysterious circumstances of her death - she emerges as a symbol of the bizarre decade during which she reigned as Hollywood's greatest female star. This book, conceived by Lawrence Schiller, Mailer's collaborator on five works, combines the author's masterful text with Stern's penetrating images of the 36-year-old Marilyn. Photographed for "Vogue" magazine over three days at the Bel-Air Hotel, Marilyn had never allowed such unfettered access, nor had she looked so breathtakingly beautiful. Six weeks later, mysteriously, she was dead. In this bold synthesis of literary classic and legendary portrait sitting, Mailer and Stern lift the veils of confusion surrounding Monroe - the woman, the star, the sex symbol - and offer profound insight into an iconic figure whose true personality remains an enigma even today. First published in as a TASCHEN limited collector's edition, this book is now available in a popular hardcover version, published on 50th anniversary of Bert Stern's "Last Sitting" and of Marilyn Monroe's death, August 5, 1962.
