Remembering Diana in Books

Several books about Princess Diana have come out this summer for the tenth anniversary of her death. Local author and Diana biographer, Tim Benford, has recollections of happier times for the "People's Princess" in this piece about Diana's visit to the island of Nevis, West Indies with her two young sons.
Benford's book, To Kill a Princess, was published last summer when the author visited BHPL to talk about his work. The annotation from the library catalog states:
"This work of fiction--a novel of conspiracy, betrayal, real facts, and richly detailed incidents from Princess Diana's life--is told in parallel with a thrilling, multi-plot story that culminates in a Paris tunnel on August 31, 1997."

New this summer in the Diana genre are:

After Diana by Christopher Anderson

The Diana Chronicles by Tina Brown
