At 4:25 am on August 5, 1962, the LAPD received a phone call. Marilyn Monroe was dead from an overdose-an apparent suicide. Dr. Ralph Greenson, her psychoanalyst, friend, and confessor, was the last person to see her alive and the first to find her dead.
This acclaimed novel brilliantly recreates Marilyn's final years through her sessions on Dr. Greenson's couch. The doctor's intimate relationship with the world's most famous and elusive actress reveals her glamorous Hollywood life, surrounded by the likes of Arthur Miller, Truman Capote, and John Huston.
A remarkable piece of storytelling, Marilyn's Last Sessions illuminates one of the greatest icons of the twentieth century, "so authentically that you often forget this is simply an imagined version of the last four years of her life" (Psychologies).
