DIANA: HER TRUE STORY
HER LIFE HAS SEEMED LIKE A FAIRY-TALE COME TRUE...yet the shocking truth is that for Diana, Princess of Wales, life has been far from perfect. Written with the cooperation and support of members of Diana's family and her closest friends, and illustrated with photographs made available exclusively for this book, it reveals a woman trapped in a loveless marriage, who has suffered from chronic illness and loneliness, who has gone to the depths of despair...and who has courageously struggled to create a new life for herself. From Amazon. Diana: Her True Story was originally published in 1992 under the guise of a quasi-authorized biography, with mostly unnamed courtiers and royalty as the accredited sources. It instantly became a sizzling, international bestseller that lanced the boil of Windsor family dysfunction, triggering a chain of events that led to Charles and Diana's divorce. After her tragic death in 1997, Morton revealed that Diana had not only been the main source for the book, but had also edited his original drafts for accuracy. In return for this gold mine of information, Diana wanted complete anonymity for fear of retaliation from the queen--a fear that seems reasonably justified after reading the icy, inhuman portrayal of Her Majesty. Beyond the racy and irregular royals, Diana: Her True Story gives a full account of the princess's rocky childhood, her bouts with bulimia, the rejection she felt by Charles and the royal family, and her tenacious ability to overcome adversity. Included are two sections of full-color photographs. From Publishers Weekly. Morton's expose of royal unhappiness--a 14-week PW bestseller in cloth--will be released in paperback to coincide with an NBC miniseries based on it. Photos.
