My Story | Marilyn Monroe, Ben Hecht

Pickpick

First published about a decade after her death, this felt like I was reading Marilyn Monroes's personal diary. In it she recounts her early childhood, her views on men and women, the industry and it's inability to take her seriously as an actress, her one-sided "feud" with Joan Crawford (my favorite part), her marriage to Joe DiMaggio and abruptly ends around the time she married Arthur Miller.

I‘m a sucker for old school wrestling, circus, and carnie stories…it was time to indulge in at least one of those categories and Terry Funk‘s autobiography fit the bill! I laughed my face off a number of times but was surprisingly touched by his thoughtful and compassionate side. It was interesting to learn he did so many hardcore matches because they paid more money and allowed him to be at home more with his family! He‘s a unique guy!! 4.5/5

Thanks for the tag, @rubyslippersreads , even if I‘m very, very late to the #AlphabetGame. 🤦🏻‍♀️

#LetterA has to be this wonderful autobiography. Ava spoke so honestly and had quite a wry sense of humor. This is also the book that started my obsession for reading celebrity memoirs.

rubyslippersreads I love celebrity bios too, but I somehow missed this one sounds fascinating. 2d
UwannaPublishme @Centique Me too! I‘m just listening to one by Lauren Bacall now. Love memoirs of these Hollywood Legends! 1d
UwannaPublishme @rubyslippersreads This one was published in 1990 and I really felt like I was having a personal conversation with Ava. Very honest and real. Not to be confused with the newer bio (The Secret Conversations). That one was more scandalous.😳 1d
rubyslippersreads @UwannaPublishme I read that one, but feel I‘d like this one better. 23h
UwannaPublishme @rubyslippersreads Guaranteed! 😊👍🏻 16h

Go Up for Glory | Bill Russell, William Mcsweeny
post image

Today was a shocking day. Two greats in American culture passed away: Bill Russell & Nichele Nichols. This post is about Bill Russell. Even though, he played before my time. I have read about his impact on the game of basketball. What he endured in Boston as a member of the Celtics was great on the court & awful off the court. However, Bill stood for what he believed in and paved the way for modern pro athletes. Rest in Love, Bill Russell.

SamAnne Ah, yes. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 1w
