Marilyn Monroe enjoyed celebrating her 36th birthday on the set of her film "Something's Got to Give." But a week later--June 8, 1962--Monroe was fired from the romantic comedy by 20th Century Fox, and the project was shelved. Two months later, she was dead from an apparent drug overdose. Over the decades, there have been glimpses of Monroe's scenes from the film--which eventually was made in 1963 as "Move Over, Darling," with Doris Day--primarily of her famous nude swimming sequence.

Greta, one of three vivid and endearing women in Cathleen Schine's new novel, finds herself at ground zero of a midlife crisis in the opening pages of "She Is Me." She is a 53-year-old landscape designer whose home in Rustic Canyon is the focus of all that restless nervous energy, and she currently favors an abundance of roses, heather and lavender in her own garden: "Santa-Monica-on-Thames" is how Schine describes it.

If, as has been said before, Pete Wilson looks the way California feels--tired, cranky and peevish--then his wife, Gayle, is looking the way California wants to feel: chipper, smiling, glad to be here. That's also a shorthand assessment for the political job-sharing component of the Wilsons' partnership.

Decked out in a lace slip and little else, Kathleen Turner's beckoning form looms over the Eugene O'Neill Theatre on West 49th Street, easily seducing passers-by from the two other marquees in view. Without a glance at the title--"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," that drama club perennial--you might think Turner's competition was "Lovers in Heat" at the World Porn Spectacular down the block, not Somerset Maugham's "The Circle," another Broadway revival playing under demure signage across the street.
