that Marilyn Monroe's writings are going to be published in a book called Fragments
. It will be released in October. The U.S. publisher will be Farrar, Straus & Giroux. Fragments
sounds like a great title for the book since Marilyn Monroe's writings that will be published are said to be somewhat random.
The impression given by Monroe's writing, he said, is that of a delicate, introspective person whose train of thought could veer all over the page.
"There is a certain melancholy tone throughout the book, and what is very beautiful in some of the notes is the way you see the association between ideas, even if they are quite scattered all over the page," said Comment, editor at Editions du Seuil.
"They go in all directions and it can be sometimes quite difficult to find order within the fragments," Comment told Reuters in an interview, adding that the writing bordered at times on self-psychoanalysis.
Reuters says Marilyn's writing sheds zero light on historical controversies like the JFK assassination, but they do reveal that the actress had some regrets about taking so many "dumb blonde" roles.
Editor Courtney Hodell says the book also includes poems and photographs. Hodell says, "She was a great reader and someone with real writing flair. There are fragments of poetry that are really quite beautiful, lines that stop you in your tracks."
