According to editor Courtney Hodell, Fragments will include poems, photos, Monroe's musings about husbands James Dougherty and Arthur Miller (it's unclear if there's anything on Joe DiMaggio), and a letter she wrote to Actors Studio head Lee Strasberg.
Also, Monroe's ideas about works by Samuel Beckett, James Joyce and other authors, and her thoughts on acting and her own movie roles. Among her best-known films are Henry Hathaway's Niagara (1953), Howard Hawks' Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), Jean Negulesco's How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), Billy Wilder's The Seven Year Itch (1955), Joshua Logan's Bus Stop (1956), Wilder's Some Like It Hot (1959), and John Huston's The Misfits (1960).
Monroe was fired from George Cukor's Something's Got to Give in 1962. She was found dead, officially a suicide, later that year.
As per an Associated Press report, the writings found in Fragments begin in 1943, when Monroe was 16-17, and go all the way to near the end of her life.
The book was commissioned by Lee Strasberg's widow, Anna Strasberg, the manager of Monroe's estate.
