Alma H. Bond

Author Alma H. Bondabout this book: The most remarkable thing about Marilyn Monroe is that she seems to exude a luminous glow, like a firefly in the dark. But exquisite as luminosity is, it often can be a kind of camouflage. What was Marilyn hiding? Her beauty was certainly dazzling, stunning, even blinding. But what did it hide? Marilyn, more brilliant than many know, understood quite well the difference between looking upon the light and seeing beyone the glow."Men do not see me," she said. "They just lay their eyes upon me." Psychoanalyst Alma bond imagines in detail a several year stretch during the late 1950s and early 60s, when Marilyn comes for analysis on the couch of Manhattan psychoanalyst Dr. Darcy Dale, and following the star's return to Hollywood, corresponds with her.

Brilliantly, entertainingly, and movingly, the book shows what lay beneath Marilyn's radiance. Dr. Dale, a fictional stand-in for author and psychoanalyst Alma Bond, sees Marilyn Monroe as few ever have, both inside and out, and transfers her insights to readers. It is impossible to imagine anyone providing a better, more complete, intimate, and more loving understanding of this truly remarkable icon and pivotal figure in film and sexual history.
