9780099568353: The Diana Chronicles

Ten years after her death, Princess Diana remains a mystery. Was she "the people's princess," who electrified the world with her beauty and humanitarian missions? Or was she a manipulative, media-savvy neurotic who nearly brought down the monarchy?

Tina Brown knew Diana personally, knows her world, understands its players, and has far-reaching insight into the royals and the Queen herself.

In The Diana Chronicles, you will meet a formidable female cast and get to know the society they inhabit...as you never have before. Diana's sexually charged mother, her subtly scheming grandmother, the stepmother she hated but eventually came to understand, and a terrifying trio of in-laws and relations: Fergie, the force of nature whose life was full of its own unacknowledged pathos; Princess Margaret, the fading glamour girl; the implacable Queen Mother and more formidable than all of them, her mother-in-law, the Queen, whose admiration Diana sought till the day she died. Add Camilla Parker-Bowles, the ultimate "other woman" into this combustible mix, and it's no wonder that Diana felt the need to break out of her royal cage into celebrity culture, where she found her own power and used it to devastating effect.

Review:

"A fresh portrait of Princess Diana and the impact she had on a generation" ( Newsweek)

"Intensely well researched and an un-put-down-able read, Tina Brown's extraordinary book parts the brocaded velvet , lifts the expensive net curtains and allows us an unprecedented look at the world and mind of the most famous person on the planet. It is a tragi-comedy, a soap opera, a social commentary, a historical document and a psychological examination, written by a superb investigative journalist." ( Academy Award Winning Actress, Helen Mirren)

"Every previous Dianologist must now take a back seat. Tina Brown's The Diana Chronicles is not a book on Diana. It is the book. It conveys better than anything I have ever read, the basic intelligence of its subject. The truly impressive thing about the book is its wisdom. It is full of good mots. It is a master. Ruthless, relentlessly inquisitive, it made me cheer to the rafters." ( A.N. Wilson, Sunday Times)

" The Diana Chronicles is a blockbuster: a rollicking, page-turning, fast quipping, gripping romp of a read. It is the work of a seasoned, serious journalist who understands that just because a subject has a populist appeal does not mean that it has to get the dumb treatment." ( The Times)

"Authoratative and well researched, Tina Brown's book should become standard reading material about the People's Princess" ( Tatler)

Book Description:

A commemorative edition, containing new material on Prince William's marriage to Kate Middleton, to mark the 50th anniversary of Diana's birth.
