Rose Tremain's 6 best books

Rose Tremain was one of only five women writers to be included in Granta’s original list of 20 Best of Young British Novelists in 1983. Her novels and short stories have been published worldwide in 27 countries and have won many prizes. In 2013 was appointed Chancellor of the University of East Anglia. One of the author's six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
BLONDE by Joyce Carol Oates

This masterpiece about Marilyn Monroe’s life is audacious, gripping and clever. Her internal suffering was masked by the external construct she created for herself and no biography captures her as vividly.
Read about another book on the list.

Blonde also appears among John O’Farrell's top ten celebrity appearances in fiction, Michel Schneider's top ten books on Marilyn Monroe, Ron Hansen's five best literary tales of real-life crimes, and Janet Fitch's book list.
