    1. Susan Strasberg is the daughter of Lee, founder of The Actor's Studio and teacher of the Method, and Paula, former actress and later the coach of Marilyn Monroe, discusses her life and relationship to the glamorous star. Monroe was often in the Stasberg home for sessions with Lee, for dinner, and sometimes even to sleep over. Susan's stories range from personal anecdotes to objective interpretations.This book is unique because it is not a full biography and includes a lot of information that has [...]


    2. xoxoxoe/2012/07/m"In Marilyn and Me: Sisters, Rivals, Friends, Susan Strasberg tries to tell what it was like to have Marilyn Monroe enter her life and the life of her family. Her father was Lee Strasberg, head of the Actors Studio, and guru to many of the film and stage actors of the 1950s, '60s and '70s (Marlon Brando, Geraldine Page, James Dean, Elia Kazan, Eva Marie Saint, Paul Newman, Jane Fonda, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, etc.) Her mother was former actress Paula Strasberg, who became Maril [...]


    3. What would it be like if Marilyn Monroe came to your house when you were a teenager, started taking classes from your father, was coached by your mother, and stole attention away from you? Quite an interesting situation to be in, and worthy of memoir. This took me two library loans to get through, as she was pretty thorough with the details, but I appreciated that she shared even the unflattering aspects of her family. I thought she seemed a reliable narrator (I'm skeptical about all of these ki [...]


    4. The Strasberg family became a huge influence in the last 7 years of Marilyn Monroe's life. She left the bulk of her estate to them when she died. Susan's book offers a peek into life with Marilyn, as she often crashed at their home and became an unofficial member of their family. Susan often felt competitive with Marilyn for her parents' attention, hence the title. Although the family was pretentious and full of themselves, it's an interesting read.


    5. I read this book several years ago. I found it to be a very interesting look into the time Marilyn Monroe spent with the Strasberg family while she was attending Lee Strasberg's Actors' Studio. Susan and she became close friends and her parents treated Marilyn like one of their own children.This book gives a very interesting, alternative insight into the life and death of Marilyn Monroe.


    6. I picked this up randomly at a friend's house when I was bored. In addition to some insight about MM, it contains some thought-provoking commentary on acting (daughter of Lee Strasberg is author), relationships, and learning to find and accept who we are in our own skin. Very well written and intelligent.


    7. Her life with Dad Lee Strasberg and Monroe. Light and fluffy - great beach read. Don't let the three star rating keep you from reading this!



    8. I used it as a research book in learning as much as I could about Marilyn Monroe. I think I learned as much from Susan Strasberg's book as from any of the more famous bios on MM.



    9. I enjoyed this book a lot. I have read many books about Marilyn and this is the first one that portrayed her as a real person with no illusions or conspiracy.


    10. Very informative. Gave true picture of the life of Marilyn Monroe from one that lived with her and saw her in a day to day setting. I really enjoyed the depth of the final chapter.
