The publisher Farrar, Straus & Giroux has announced a new book of musings about Marilyn Monroe's life. "Fragments" will come out in October and will include Monroe's poems, which editor Courtney Hodell said contains work that is quite beautiful - "lines that stop you in your tracks."

The book will also include a long essay about Monroe's first husband, James Dougherty, and notes about her acting roles. Monroe wrote on everything from spiral-bound notebooks to hotel stationery. Most of the book will contain rarely-seen writings.

"Fragments" was commissioned by Anna Strasberg, who manages Monroe's estate.

Monroe was found dead in her Los Angeles home in 1962 at age 36.
