Marilyn Monroe's Writing to See Light of Day

FSG collection of late starlet's literary works due in October

If you’re like me, when you think of Marilyn Monroe, you think of one thing: literature.

Farrar, Straus and Giroux announced on Tuesday it plans to publish a collection of Monroe’s writing in October. Entitled “Fragments,” FSG promises the book “reveals a very different side” of the late starlet.  It will also “contain a small collection of rarely seen photographs as well as reproductions of selected documents-mostly handwritten in Monroe's own hand, some of them typed."

According to GalleyCat, Anna Strasberg – who heads the Monroe estate — brought the "never-before-seen writings" to family friend Stanley Buchthal and book editor Bernard Comment, who served as “Fragments” editors.
