SOON TO BE A MAJOR NETFLIX FILM, STARRING ANA DE ARMAS, ADRIEN BRODY, BOBBY CANNAVALE AND JULIANNE NICHOLSON, DIRECTED BY ANDREW DOMINIK 'A torrentially imaginative, compulsively readable tour de force' Sunday Telegraph 'A fabulous reinvention of the life of a fabulous reinvention, and a cracking page-turner to boot' Evening Standard Blonde is a mesmerising novel about the most enduring and evocative cultural icon of the 20th century: the woman who became Marilyn Monroe. A fragile and gifted young woman, Norma Jeane Baker makes and remakes her identity: she is the orphan whose mother is declared mad; the woman who changes her name to be an actress; the fated celebrity, lover and muse. Told in her voice, Blonde shows a culture hypnotised by its own myths, and the devastating effects it had on Hollywood's greatest star.

'This masterpiece about Marilyn Monroe's life is audacious, gripping and clever' Rose Tremain 'If you haven't read Joyce Carol Oates before, start here, and now' Independent
