Re-Reading ‘My Week With Marilyn’

Colin Clark’s two memoirs have been reissued in a single volume to tie in with today’s movie release. In a review for the Daily Mail, Tom Cox says that the first part (The Prince, the Showgirl and Me) as ‘delightfully gossipy’, but argues that My Week With Marilyn ‘has none of the same charm, and reads like a childish dream sequence about the Monroe legend in its most reductive form.’

If you prefer the listening cure, My Week With Marilyn has also been serialised on BBC Radio 4 this week.
