A book I plan to read: Arthur Miller & Marilyn Monroe

I read yesterday in the NYTIMES an article by DWIGHT GARNER titled:
Some Like It Hot, Some Like It Literary: A Playwright’s Life, With Marilyn

It was about the book "Arthur Miller: 1915-1962,” by Christopher Bigsby. A fan of Marilyn and Miller, I plan to read this!

Here is part of the article. You should read it.

Arthur Miller was 35 and at the top of his career when, in 1951, he first set eyes on Marilyn Monroe. He was the author of “All My Sons” and “Death of a Salesman,” the first play to win all three major drama prizes (the Pulitzer Prize, the Tony Award and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award). He would soon begin work on “The Crucible.” She was 24 and, with minor film roles behind her, virtually unknown.

You can read some of the book here:
