Marilyn Monroe is not just one of the essential movie stars, she is an inexhaustible subject for writers, too many of whom work backwards from her sad death to depict a sad life. Not Elizabeth Winder, who devotes her book to a single year: 1954, Marilyn's "Year of Joy," as the subtitle has it, when the world's biggest star left Hollywood for Manhattan to study acting. Many of her classmates and pals became big stars, too, which makes encountering them here as much fun for the reader as it seems to have been for the optimistic, energized Marilyn of this book.
