Written at the height of her fame, but not published until over a decade after her death, this autobiography of actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) poignantly recounts her childhood as an unwanted orphan, her early adolescence, her rise in the film industry from bit player to celebrity, her marriage to Joe DiMaggio, and more. The Marilyn in these pages is a revelation: a gifted, intelligent, vulnerable woman who was far more complex than the unwitting sex siren she portrayed on screen. Lavishly illustrated with photos of Marilyn taken by renowned photographer Milton H. Greene, this special book celebrates the life and career of an American icon- from the unique perspective of the icon herself. -- Publisher description.

Known around the world for her eponymous brand of fragrances and her latest venture, Jo Loves, Jo Malone tells the “inspiring, courageous, and brutally honest” (Nylon) story of her rise from humble beginnings to beloved business success. Jo Malone began her international fragrance and scented candle business in 1983 in her kitchen, where she gave facials and made bath oils as thank-you gifts for her clients. She opened her first store in London in 1994 and, in 1999, she sold the Jo Malone London brand to Estée Lauder Companies for millions of dollars. Recently, she launched a new brand, Jo Loves, igniting the excitement of fashion and beauty websites all over the world. Raised in government-subsidized housing in Kent in the early 1960s, Jo Malone dropped out of school as a teenager to care for her sick mother. Jo had not been successful in school because of her severe dyslexia, but she had the ability to see and feel everything in scent. Her at-home beauty business and handmade products became popular, and word of her talent spread until an international brand was born. After the sale of her company and the birth of her son, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy. Thus began the second chapter of her life, and in her “inspiring story of human spirit and chutzpah” (Booklist, starred review), Jo tells her full amazing and inspiring personal story. This memoir is “a testament to the power of ambition and the joy of following your dreams” (People).
