Liz Smith on Mailer’s ‘Marilyn’

Liz Smith reviewed the new, deluxe Mailer/Stern book, published by Taschen, in her column this week:

“Monroe’s admirers hope this latest batch of Bert Stern photos do her justice. Many of the 3,000-plus shots he took are iconic works of art, and deserve to be properly re-printed. Most who saw Marilyn in those final months said she had never looked so lovely — thin, fragile, but ravishing…It will be good, also, to have Norman’s words out there again, causing blood to boil.”
