I'm so sorry Ms. Virna Lisi ...

A week from publishing Unrequited and I discover a huge mistake I made in the manuscript and in real life. For 15 years, I have had this picture, framed, in my house. It came from my very cool, now dead uncle.

Until ten minutes ago, I thought the woman in this photo was Marilyn Monroe.

I was about to tweet about the photo and then I read a small article on Esquire's website. I had to read it 3 times to comprehend it. My first clue should've been the issue is from 1965.

It isn't Marilyn. It's Virna Lisi. Whoever the fuck that is.
