«Oates sabe que ya has visto a Marilyn Monroe. l. a. 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 l. a. 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 l. a. 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 los angeles 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», los angeles 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 l. a. 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 los angeles 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 los angeles 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 los angeles 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

In 1393 his elder cousin Vieri de’ Medici retired, and Giovanni bought out the Rome branch of the bank. But why, four years later, did he move back to Florence to make the decisive gesture of forming his own bank? And why did Florence become the headquarters of that bank, though it would never begin to equal the profits generated in Rome? As with the cardinals and their discretionary gifts, the answer has to do with family. ” It is an interesting question. Just as it’s intriguing in the Divina commedia how many of Dante’s damned seem more concerned with the honor of their family name back in Florence than their eternal torment in hell.

So another bill of exchange is written out. But, even disregarding temporal fluctuations, the exchange rate is different in London.

All the same, it was vigorously condemned by theologians because now it had become obvious that what the client really wanted was a loan, and not an exchange deal. Motivation is important. In 1429 the government of Florence banned the practice.
