RagDoll Redeemed: Growing Up in the Shadow of Marilyn Monroe #Novotny
Dawn Novotny
For years women have asked, “Who am I?” “Where do I fit?” “What does it mean to be a woman?” Dawn Novotny's memoir struggles with those questions, but for Dawn it was more difficult to answer those questions. After all, she was married to Joe DiMaggio Jr. a man who was fascinated with his stepmother, Marilyn Monroe, and wanted to transform Dawn into his own version of Marilyn. RagDoll Redeemed is the story of one woman’s balancing act between embracing her sexuality and creating a person that utilized all her abilities: mental, emotional and physical.
