Description: In her most ambitious work to date, one of America's most celebrated writers examines the inner, spiritual life of the woman who became Hollywood's most enduring legend. She was Norma Jean Baker, the love child of a mentally unstable film cutter and an up-and-coming B-movie actor, and her life -- teetering on a luminous thread of chance, raw hunger for love, and aloof ingenuity -- became the very definition of Stardom. In Blonde, she tells her own distinctly epic story of how an emblematic American artist, perpetually divided and intensely real, lost her way.

Bristling with raw psychological insights and subtle irony, this dazzling narrative envelops the facts we think we know about Norma Jean's lonely Childhood, wrenching adolescence, and the creation of the Marilyn Monroe myth in rich, post-modern tapestry. It is also a startling exploration of Hollywood's underbelly and how its expansive power plays out against one woman's excruciating struggle with fear and estrangement. Here, Joyce Carol Oates pays tribute to the elusive art of acting and movie-making while bringing to life dozens of this country's most enigmatic celebrities -- including John F. Kennedy, Arthur Miller, Joe DiMaggio, and Marlon Brando. It is a truly moving canvas of a culture suspended in the myths of its own creation and the shattering reality of the people behind it.
