Marilyn & Me
The intimate story of a star before her fall and a young photographer on his way to the top. In this Collector’s Edition, Lawrence Schiller pairs his extraordinary Monroe portfolio with personal memories of Marilyn, told with tact, humor, and compassion. The result is a real and unexpected portrait that captures the star in the midst of her final struggle.
“You’re already famous, now you’re going to make me famous,” photographer Lawrence Schiller said to Marilyn Monroe as they discussed the photos he was about to shoot of her. “Don’t be so cocky,” Marilyn replied, “photographers can be easily replaced.” The year was 1962, and Schiller, 25, was on assignment for Paris Match magazine. He already knew Marilyn — they had met on the set of Let’s Make Love — but nothing could have prepared him for the day she appeared nude during a swimming pool scene for the motion picture Something’s Got to Give.

“With a precision of a surgeon‚ Schiller slices through the façade of Marilyn Monroe in his unflinching memoir. Revealing and readable‚ it‘s a book I couldn‘t put down.”
— Tina Brown
