438本,玛丽莲梦露的一生书单

前天我们推荐了梦露的生死阅读:她想靠头脑,但社会只许她拼颜值一文,这篇文章讲述了梦露身为世人眼中的“金发蠢妞”,仍能心无旁骛地在书籍里上下求索的一生。

她的铁杆粉丝们通过档案照片、访谈和拍卖目录,整理出了一份梦露的书单,438本书中,390本有文字资料可查,40多本通过照片等资料确证。

这份书单的深度与广度甚至足以秒杀某些现代文学博士。

美人薄命的梦露在36岁便不幸身亡,在这短短的一生中,她所积累的430多本藏书量足以可见其对阅读的热爱。

在此,我们想将完整的438本呈现出来。

但这个书目确实非常庞大,并且涉及领域宽广,还包含了一些小众的书籍。本来想整理得细致些,做起来才发现工作量真·的·好·大·啊,几乎每本书每个作家都值得为大家介绍。

所以还是决定暂时呈现完整的原版书单,同时奉上一份由粉丝精心整理挑选好的短书单译版。这些经典作品与作家我们可以以后一起慢慢认识。

你在列表每发现一部熟悉的作品,一位认识的作家,也许就能多察觉出些微的,当年绝代风华的梦露栖身于文字时所求索的东西。
