The New York Times bestseller, now in paperback from one of the most versatile and bold writers of our time—"an astonishing, tightly structured, and lyrically told" novel (People) inspired by Princess Diana.
What if Princess Diana hadn't died? Diana's life and marriage were fairy tale and nightmare rolled into one. Adored by millions, in her personal life she suffered rejection, heartbreak, and betrayal. Surrounded by glamor and glitz and the constant attentions of the press, she fought to carve a meaningful role for herself in helping the needy and dispossessed. Had she lived, what direction would her life have taken? How would she have matured into her forties and beyond?
Untold Story is about the nature of celebrity, the meaning of identity, and finding one's place in the world. Like Diana, the fictional princess who is the novel's heroine is both icon and iconoclast. She touches many millions of lives and hearts around the world, sharing the details of her troubled marriage, her eating disorders, and reaching out as no other royal before her. But she is troubled and on the brink of disaster. Will she ever find peace and happiness in her own life, or will the curse of fame always be too great?
