Description
Where were you the day Diana died? Like the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the tragic death of the Princess of Wales on August 31, 1997 is one of those defining benchmarks in history -- an event that touched each of us so profoundly, we will never forget the moment we heard the news. A full year after the Paris car crash that ended Diana's life at age thirty-six, millions around the world remain in shock. Over the sixteen years since her storybook wedding to Prince Charles, she had evolved from "Shy Di" into the planet's most photographed, written about, & talked about woman -- indeed, the most famous person in the world. For all Diana's global fame, much of the human drama that swirled around her death remains veiled in mystery & intrigue. Now, in the manner of his headline-making Kennedy biographies Jack & Jackie & Jackie After Jack, Christopher Andersen draws on important sources -- many of whom have agreed to speak here for the first time -- to re-create in vivid & often startling detail the events leading up to that fateful night in Paris. Diana was, in every sense of the word, larger than life -- a force of nature that, as the Royal Family learned, could be neither dismissed nor ignored. A bittersweet saga of triumph, love, & loss, The Day Diana Died captures those last days when Diana's star never shone brighter -- & evokes the beauty, grace, heartache, & compassion that made Diana one of the most compelling figures of our time.
