The 1956 wedding o Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller surprised theworld.
The Genius and the Goddess
presents an intimate portrait o theprelude to and ultimate tragedy o their short marriage. Distinguishedbiographer Jerey Meyers skillully explores why they married, whatsustained them or ve years, and what ultimately destroyed their marriageand her lie.The greatest American playwright o the twentieth century and the mostpopular American actress both complemented and wounded one another.Marilyn craved attention and success but became dependent on drugs, al-cohol, and sexual adventures. Miller experienced creative agony with her.Their ve-year marriage coincided with the creative peak o her career, yetprivate and public confict caused both o them great anguish.Meyers has crated a richly nuanced dual biography based on his quarter-century riendship with Miller, interviews with major players o stage andscreen during the postwar Hollywood era, and extensive archival research.He describes their secret courtship. He also reveals new inormation aboutthe eect o the HUAC anti-Communist witch-hunts on Miller and hisriendship with Elia Kazan. The ascinating cast o characters includesMarilyn’s co-stars Sir Laurence Olivier, Yves Montand, Montgomery Clit,and Clark Gable; her leading directors John Huston, Billy Wilder, andGeorge Cukor; and her literary riends Dame Edith Sitwell, Isak Dinesen,Saul Bellow, and Vladimir Nabokov.Meyers oers the most in-depth account o the making and meaning o 
The Mists.
Written by Miller or Monroe, this now-classic lm was apersonal disaster. But Marilyn remained Miller’s tragic muse and her char-acter, exalted and tormented, lived on or the next orty years in his work.
