   Yes, there is “A Different View of Marilyn.”  February 16, 2004 marks the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s tour of Korea.  The author’s musical abilities and Marilyn’s red-hot star power

combined to perform unforgettable shows in front of more than 100,000 service persons.  The times they shared, and how they got there and moved onward, are the subjects of this memoir.

 This book also presents a comparative view of the lifestyles of the performers, Marilyn and Al, making it both a biography of Marilyn Monroe and an autobiography of the author Al Guastafeste.
