What is everyone reading at the moment I find I have lots of books to read but getting round to actually reading them is a challenge to me. I have recently started reading My Sister Marilyn I never knew Marilyn even had a sister 🙂

      Fascinating book. I read it some time ago and was also surprised that Marilyn had a sister & family. It seems the orphan story was mainly elaborated by the studio. I thought it was particularly interesting that Marilyn was depressed and envious of Liz Taylor and her record breaking $1 million fee for Cleopatra (1963) at the time of her death. So much has been written on Marilyn and this provided another, completely different perspective.
