Audio includes an in-depth interview with the author and Michael Silverblatt, host of KCRW's Bookworm. She was an all-American girl who became a legend of unparalleled stature. She inspired the adoration of millions, and her life has beguiled generations of fans and fellow artists. The story of Norma Jeane Baker -- better known by her studio name "Marilyn Monroe" -- has been dissected for more than three decades, but never has it been captured in a narrative as breathtaking and transforming as Blonde. In her most ambitious work to date, Joyce Carol Oates, one of America's most distinguished writers, reimagines the inner, poetic, and spiritual life of Norma Jeane Baker -- the child, the woman, the fated celebrity -- and tells the story in Norma Jeane's own voice: startling, rich, and shattering. Drawing on biographical and historical sources, Joyce Carol Oates evokes the distinct consciousness of the woman and the unsparing reflection of the myth, writing as she has never written before -- ecstatic, completely absorbed, inhabited as if by the spirit of her extraordinary subject. Rich with psychological insight and disturbing irony, this mesmerizing narrative illumines Norma Jeane's lonely childhood, wrenching adolescence, and the creation of "Marilyn Monroe." With fresh insights into the heart of a celebrity culture hypnotized by its own myths, Blonde is a sweeping novel about the elusive magic of a woman, the lasting legacy of a star, and the heartbreak behind the creation of the most evocative icon of the twentieth century.… (més)

Such a sad, sad book. It was so easy to identify with Norma Jean and for your heart to break for Marilyn. Wonderfully written. ( )

I knew very little about the life of Marilyn Monroe, but I had heard about this book. Indeed, Joyce Carol Oates does a remarkable job of showing us how, from her earliest days, Norma Jeane's "self", was never one integrated whole. She was at times her little girl self, at other times the self that other people wanted her to be and the self she presented to the world. It was exhausting and, ultimately, destructive. Oates allows the reader into the thoughts of the "Blonde", as well as into the thoughts of the people who were part of her life for better or worse. While the book kept me interested and curious, it was also very, very depressing from start to finish.
Oates warns the reader in the preface that this is a work of fiction and though it follows Norma Jeane's biography fairly closely, it is not a reliable source for information on NJ, though it reads as if this must have been what it was like, what she thought, how people treated her. After finishing the book, I looked up some of the people that were important in her life, and was shocked that a major character (a real person) who dies about a year before she does in the book and provides a devastating revelation, actually died about 6 years after she did and thus deflates much of what his death would have meant to her.
I did watch "Some Like it Hot", which I'd never seen before (I'd only ever seen "Seven Year Itch" which is charming) and thought it was a horribly sexist movie -- not very funny. The book does make me want to watch her other films, especially the early ones and "The Misfits". ( )

What a book. A great American novel that makes her life the epic it deserves, and lays bare the sickness beneath the artifice in American culture from the '30s to the '60s, culminating with her death shortly after being paraded out to sing "Happy Birthday" for the President while she was barely able to function. In a career of great novels, many call this JCO's masterpiece, and I've only read six or so, but this is an incredible accomplishment. Even if you aren't interested in Monroe, it is beautiful, tragic, compelling reading. ( )

Med akkurat samme feilkilder og utvelgelser vil en historisk roman kunne være like sann som en såkalt biografi. Og med de frodighetene, den innlevelsen og sans for steminger, de persepsjonene og iakttagelsene hun gjør, er det igjen en stor fryd å lese en av USAs største nålevende forfattere. Med debuten på 60-tallet, skrivekunstlærergjerning gjennom mange år og stor produksjon av romaner, poesi og saksprosa har hun satt spor bl a gjennom sin tydelighet. Når hun er blitt konfrontert med beskyldningen om for mye vold i sine bøker, repliserer hun med at det er å si det samme som at det er for mye realitet i livet. Igjen et eksempel på at i kunsten (som i kriminaliteten) ligger det utillatelige. Her i boken er vi bak en av de store blonde myter i Hollywood-virkeligheten, kanskje med en bakgrunn der hennes skjebne ble fastlåst?

A stunning, dream-like evocation of the life of Norma Jean & her creation: Marilyn Monroe. Based on extensive research, Oates gives a fictionalised imagining of Marilyn, from unloved & abused child onwards. Oates’s writing creates the inward world of Marilyn & at the same time the various affects she had on others. And, 700 odd pages later, I know much more about the life of the troubled, luminous star but she still remains a fascinating enigma. ( )
