In this ambitious book, Joyce Carol Oates boldly reimagines
the inner, poetic, and spiritual life of Norma Jeane
Bakerâ€”the child, the woman, the fated celebrity and idolized
blonde the world came to know as Marilyn Monroe. In a voice
startling, intimate, and rich, Norma Jeane tells her own
story, that of an emblematic American artistâ€”intensely
conflicted and drivenâ€”who has lost her way. A powerful
portrait of Hollywood's myth and an extraordinary woman's
heartbreaking reality, Blonde is a sweeping epic that pays
tribute to the elusive magic and devastation behind the
creation of the great twentieth-century American star.
