Summary

Tras el éxito de sus biografías de Frida Kahlo y Bowie,
María Hesse nos entrega a una Marilyn como nunca antes la habías visto

Fue uno de los grandes iconos del siglo XX, el rostro y las piernas más populares de todos los tiempos. De ella se enamoró el gran público, además de cineastas, escritores o el mismísimo presidente de los Estados Unidos. Sin embargo, murió sola e incomprendida a los treinta y seis años.

¿Quién era verdaderamente Norma Jeane Baker? Tras la actriz más conocida de la historia cinematográfica, tras el símbolo sexual de toda una época, tras el prototipo por excelencia de la rubia tonta, se escondía una mujer que sigue siendo una gran desconocida.

Tras hacer florecer los corazones de Frida Kahlo y de David Bowie, y descubrirnos su lado más humano, María Hesse ha hecho brotar el alma de Marilyn Monroe, una mujer que, como tantas contemporáneas, hizo saltar por los aires todos los cánones y merece ser recordada, hoy más que nunca, por su talento, su sensibilidad, su inteligencia y las barreras que rompió.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Following the great success of her Frida Kahlo and Bowie biographies, María Hesse offers Marilyn like you've never seen her before.
 
She was one of the greatest icons of the 20th century, the most admired face and legs of all time. The public fell in love with her, as well as filmmakers, writers, and even the president of the United States. However, she died alone and misunderstood at the age of thirty-six.
 
But who was Norma Jeane Baker really? Behind the best-known actress in film history, behind the sex symbol of an entire era, behind the quintessential prototype of the silly blonde, there was a woman who remains a great unknown.
 
After making Frida Kahlo and David Bowie’s hearts blossom, and showing us their most human side, María Hesse has now made Marilyn Monroe’s soul flourish, a woman who, like so many of her contemporaries, blew up all the rules and norms and deserves to be remembered, today more than ever, for her talent, her sensitivity, her intelligence, and the barriers she broke.
