Example text

He’s never believed that Marilyn took her own life, but neither has he come out and said the contrary. Years have passed, and he doesn’t want to die without putting something right, without showing the world the image that the tapes reveal of a woman full of life, of humour, of desire – anything but depressive or suicidal. Miner knows from experience that people who are full of drive and hope one minute can kill themselves in an efficient, resolute manner the next; that one can want to stop living without wanting to die; and that a longing for death is sometimes just a desire to put an end to the pain of living rather than life itself.

Miner says nothing. ’ persists the journalist. ‘That’s not the question I ask. Not who but what killed Marilyn. ’ Miner stands up. As he leaves, he puts two faded, battered manila envelopes on Backwright’s desk. ‘I can’t give you proof of anything. I heard what she said. The voice she said it in has . . how can I put it? . has been lost. Every trace a person leaves erases another trace or, if they’re lying, covers one up. There is something I can leave you, though. Something that doesn’t prove anything either.

The stories may have been as fanciful a creation as the platinum of her hair, but this was the movie business, and Marilyn was watching herself up there on a screen full of memories. Hollywood, Sunset Boulevard 1960 Los Angeles, the city of angels, had become the dream factory in more ways than one. The meeting of Ralph Greenson and Marilyn Monroe would have been inconceivable anywhere but Hollywood. Two people with such disparate histories could only have found one another in Tinseltown, the city of spotlights, sequins and glitter, among the limitless cast of characters orbiting the studios – all those blindingly bright sets on which actors exposed the half-light of their souls.
