Very interesting book, amazing to see all these letters and notes written by the star herself.

What I really loved about this book was the letter she wrote to the Strausbergs while she was in the psychiatric ward. Documentaries often portray that time as her being mentally unstable, yet the letter she dictated to her secretary is anything but.
