Summary, etc.:
Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe's elopement in 1954 caused a sensation unlike any the American public had ever seen. Joe and Marilyn reveals the true inside story of these iconic figures whose love affair (and ensuing scandals) became Hollywood legend. Though their marriage lasted only nine months, they remained devoted to each other, even after death: DiMaggio had a half-dozen red roses delivered three times a week to her crypt for twenty years. Based on extensive archival research and personal interviews with Monroe and DiMaggio's family and friends, Joe and Marilyn offers great insight into a famously tragic romance.
