The Mmm Girl: Marilyn Monroe, by herself - Tara Hanks

The Mmm Girl

‘Nothing lasts forever…we all have a short time, to shine or just survive.’

Who was Marilyn Monroe? She began as Norma Jeane, the Los Angeles waif who dreamed of being a movie star. The camera worshipped her, and she became America’s greatest sex symbol.

For thirty-six years, she dazzled the world with her fragile, but radiant beauty. In private, she yearned for fulfilment. Her myth shone so brightly that it threatened to destroy her. Then, one night in 1962, she left us in mystery.

The Mmm Girl follows the journey of a self-made goddess, from the orphanage to the silver screen. By standing in her shoes, Tara Hanks uncovers the reality of Marilyn’s life – as she might have told it herself.

'...Tara Hanks’ upcoming novel “The Mmm Girl” - a novel about the life of Marilyn Monroe as she might have told it...gave me chills. In her book, Tara delves into the mind of the legendary actress and tells her story from Marilyn’s own perspective. I’ve read several biographies of Marilyn’s life and always thought to myself, “I wonder how it must have felt for her coming from a broken home and making it so big …” and here, Hanks has found a way to attempt to answer that question...'Susan Heidi, artist.
