Viata si casnicia Dianei au fost, in acelasi timp, o poveste si un cosmar. Adorata de milioane de oameni, a avut de indurat totodata respingerea, durerea sufleteasca si tradarea in viata personala. inconjurata de stralucire si de atentia constanta a presei, a luptat mereu sa-si gaseasca propriul drum, iar fascinatia pe care continua sa o exercite chiar si dupa mai mult de un deceniu de la moarte este inca o dovada a unei personalitati extraordinare. Daca ar mai fi trait, si-ar fi gasit pana la urma pacea si fericirea sau blestemul celebritatii ar fi apasat mereu asupra ei?

Intr-un roman tulburator, scriitoarea Monica Aii a imaginat pentru Lady Di o alta soarta. Dupa inscenarea propriei morti, Diana duce o existenta linistita intr-un mic orasel din America - pana cand trecutul ameninta sa ii distruga noua viata.

Diana. Povestea nespusa analizeaza pretul celebritatii, importanta identitatii si posibilitatea - sau imposibilitatea - reinventarii unei vieti.

Monica Ali este considerata una dintre cele mai bune tinere scriitoare din Marea Britanie, cartile sale fiind nominalizate la premii importante precum National Book Critics Circle Award, Los Angeles Times Book Prize si Man Booker Prize

Meet the Author

Monica Ali
Monica Ali
As the only unpublished author to make the prestigious, once-a-decade Granta list of the 20 best young British writers, Monica Ali enjoyed a reputation as a wunderkind even before the appearance of her debut novel, Brick Lane. As the London Observer puts it, she's "already one of the most significant British novelists of her generation."

Biography

Before her first book was even released, Monica Ali was the talk of the town. On the basis of only a few chapters, she was offered a generous publishing contract. Then, while her novel was still in manuscript form, she was named to Granta's once-a-decade list of Best Young British Novelists. With all the advance hype, readers and reviewers were skeptical. Could a debut novel really be worth all this hubbub? In 2003, the question was laid to rest, when Brick Lane was published to rapturous acclaim and almost instant bestsellerdom.

The daughter of English and Bangladeshi parents, Ali came to England when she was three years old. She studied at Oxford, graduating with honors in 1989, and worked in publishing and design before settling down to raise a family. After her children were born, she wrote a few short stories -- more to sharpen her skills than to satisfy any real creative impulse. In truth, she found the format of short fiction a bit constraining and longed for something more challenging. Finally, she summoned the courage to attempt a novel. A few chapters in, she succumbed to the urge for constructive feedback and showed what she had written to a friend in publishing. Within a week, she was offered a two-book deal.

Focused on a young Muslim housewife living in a small, almost invisible Bangladeshi community in London, Brick Lane offers a bird's-eye view of the immigrant experience in all its cross-cultural confusion. London's Observer had this to say: "Brick Lane has everything: richly complex characters, a gripping story and an exploration of a community that is so quintessentially British that it has given us our national dish, but of which most of us are entirely ignorant." And the New York Times praised Ali's eloquent, restrained style: "[T]he language of Brick Lane seems both deliberately unflamboyant and metaphorically precise."

In 2006, Ali delivered her long-awaited sophomore effort, the melancholy mood piece Alentejo Blue. A work of episodic fiction midway between a novel and a series of linked stories, the book was well reviewed, although it never achieved the acclaim of Brick Lane. Generally viewed as one of our best contemporary writers, Ali continues to produce fiction in both its long and short forms.

Good To Know

In our interview, Ali shared some fascinating facts about herself:

"I started writing short stories when my eldest child was about a year old. I'd go onto the Internet late at night and swap ‘crits' with other aspiring writers."

"I started writing Brick Lane when my children were two years and five months old. We were on holiday in the north of England when I was overtaken by a compulsion to start writing. My husband was kind enough to take the children outside while I drew the curtains against the sun and sat there in my pajamas with a pen and paper."
