By Joyce Carol Oates

«Oates sabe que ya has visto a Marilyn Monroe. los angeles reconocerías en cualquier parte. Tantas imágenes, tantas historias que ya han echado raíces en tu mente. Pero su fuerza y su talento consiste en limitarse a señalar los detalles y traerla de vuelta a los angeles vida, a ella y a todo el siglo: l. a. muchacha desnuda, el terciopelo rojo, las plantas de sus pies.»
Bethany Schneider, Newsday «Socorro, siento que los angeles Vida se acerca.»

Marilyn Monroe period puro fuego, sexualidad a flor de piel, romances turbulentos; pero también period frágil, una mujer asustada y repleta de inseguridades que buscaba en otros -el Ex Deportista, el Dramaturgo o el Presidente- ese amor que ella misma se negaba. Una artista emblemática cargada de conflictos y temores, de pasiones desatadas; una niña que no dejó de huir hacia delante, y llegó a burlar a l. a. propia muerte para convertirse en leyenda.

Tras una exhaustiva documentación, Joyce Carol Oates redibuja l. a. vida inside de Norma Jeane Baker -la pequeña sin padre, los angeles mujer dependiente de tranquilizantes y estimulantes, l. a. malograda actriz y amante- y a su «Amiga Mágica del Espejo», l. a. idolatrada rubia que el mundo llegó a conocer como Marilyn Monroe.

La crítica ha dicho...
«Dramática, provocativa e inquietantemente sugerente, Blonde es tan explosiva como su protagonista, los angeles legendaria Marilyn Monroe. En una prosa impresionista de elevada potencia, Oates crea un retrato sorprendente y conmovedor de l. a. estrella mítica y de l. a. sociedad que los angeles creó y le falló.»
Publishers Weekly

«Oates nos hace vivir l. a. vida de Marilyn Monroe. Y es un verdadero infierno. Y es brillante. Porque nos querremos arrancar los ojos para dejar de mirar, y es imposible.»
Ann Patchett, The Times

«Oates rebosa testosterona, y su último libro es agresivo y atrevido. Quiere que miremos a un personaje mítico con nuevos ojos, pero no con los de l. a. cámara, sino con nuestros ojos más humanos.»
Philip Weiss, New York Observer

«En lo referente a Marilyn Monroe, el público siempre se quedaba en el external y miraba hacia el inside, pero he aquí que en esta nueva y apasionante novela, Blonde, Joyce Carol Oates revierte ese proceso al plantarse en el inside de l. a. torturada psique de los angeles actriz para rematar un retrato perturbadoramente íntimo.»
John Thomas, Playboy

«Oates se libera de los corsés de una renarración periodística de hechos archiconocidos y crea con verdadera maestría una potente tragedia norteamericana profundamente inquietante.»
Susan Tekulve, Book Magazine

«Una novela que nos va ganando y absorbiendo a medida que vamos pasando las páginas hasta seducirnos por completo.»
Jason S. Polley, Revista Arcadia

«Un libro potente e hipnótico.»
Elaine Showalter, Literary Review

«La obra más importante dela prolífica carrera de Oates.»
Dan Cryer, Newsday

«Una magnífica obra, escrita con parte de esa frenética inspiración con l. a. que Marilyn Monroe vivió su vida. Si no ha leído aún a Joyce Carol Oates, no lo deje por más tiempo. Empiece aquí y ahora.»
Susan Jeffreys, The Independent
