Top 10 books about Marilyn Monroe

Michel Schneider has written on psychoanalysis, Baudelaire, Proust, Schumann and Glenn Gould. His latest novel is Marilyn's Last Sessions.

For the Guardian he selected a top ten list of books on Marilyn Monroe, including:
Marilyn Monroe: The Biography by Donald Spoto

Using more than 150 interviews and some 35,000 pages of previously sealed files, including Monroe's diaries, letters, and other personal and revealing documents, this is certainly the best and most accurate biography of Marilyn. Spoto reveals new details of every aspect of her life, and her mysterious death. No, Marilyn was not killed by the Kennedys. Her suicide may have been accidental, after being fed all those barbiturates by different people over the years; and Greenson and her housekeeper, Eunice Murray, may have had a hand in it.
