Show synopsis -- While there are many pictorial remembrances of Princess Diana, this is the only book of verbal tributes by more than two dozen writers, poets, commentators, and ordinary people who were moved to articulate their thoughts and feelings about her untimely death. -- Millions of people who were not only mesmerized by the events of September 1997 but also surprised at their own feelings and reactions about Princess Diana will find enlightenment, solace, and comfort in these testimonials. -- The lineup of contributors is most impressive: Lord Spencer, Diana's brother; novelists Martin Amis and Maya Angelou; editors Katherine Graham and Tina Brown, historian Simon Schama (see complete list attached). -- In a real sense, this volume is a lasting memorial to the Princess of Wales, beautifully evoking the memory of, in her brother's words, "the unique, the complex, the extraordinary, and the irreplaceable Diana". -- Author royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital Fund, of which Princess Diana was patron.
