Marilyn in Manhattan: Her Year of Joy is a new book from author and historian Elizabeth Winder that recounts actress Marilyn Monroe's time spent in New York City in late 1954 and 1955.

In Manhattan, the most famous woman in the world can wander the streets unbothered, spend hours at the Met getting lost in art, and afternoons buried in the stacks of the Strand. Marilyn begins to live a life of the mind in New York; she dates Arthur Miller, dances with Truman Capote and drinks with Carson McCullers. Even though she had never lived there before, in New York, Marilyn is home.
