Recommended Reads: The Diana Chronicles

Recommended Reads: The Diana Chronicles by Tina Brown (BIOG DIA)

This week's recommended read is inspired by March's Women's History Month. The Diana Chronicles is perhaps the definitive biography of Princess Diana. Not just a recounting of juicy gossip, this book provides insights into Diana's private life, the British Royal Family and the celebrity culture of the late 20th century. The various triumphs and setbacks of Diana's life resemble a real-life soap opera and Tina Brown uses vivid, propulsive language that truly puts readers into the action. This biography paints a portrait of a complex woman who captured the hearts of many in the not too distant past.
