If you are at all interested in reading the detail-saturated, inside story behind the rough and turbulent 9-month marriage that took place (back in 1954) between famed baseball hero, Joe DiMaggio, and famed movie-screen siren, Marilyn Monroe - Then this well-researched work of non-fiction, called "Legends In Love", will, most certainly, open your eyes up to a highly-publicized celebrity-union that was far from being "made-in-heaven".

Providing the ever-curios reader with all of the essential facts & figures - Author David Heymann weaves a truly engrossing, real-life tale of a volatile relationship between 2 clearly incompatible super-stars who really couldn't have been more the opposite to one another than night and day.

At the time of their marriage - Monroe was 28 and DiMaggio was 40.

Fascinating reading with the emphasis on Joe DiMaggio life with and without Marilyn Monroe.
