Misfit is a novel about how Norma Jean Mortenson tried to overcome her difficult childhood by becoming Marilyn Monroe, and then how she in turn struggled to get past her Marilyn Monroe image. It recounts how she tried to reinvent herself by marrying outside Hollywood and studying acting in New York City. The insights into her marriages are interesting, as are the descriptions of her relationships with other celebrities, such as Frank Sinatra. However, it was often frustrating not knowing which details are real and which are from the author’s imagination.
