Nothing like a well-padded commemorative edition to take the edge off a senseless tragedy, is there? Andrew Morton’s hardcover reissue of his 1992 Diana: Her True Story (bolstered by the not-exactly-bombshell revelation that the princess was his major source) is now heir to the No. 1 throne everyone thought Kitty Kelley would be occupying all fall. Crass opportunism, brilliant journalism, whatever: The refurbished tome has already returned to press three times, for an in-print total of 750,000 copies.
