What if Princess Diana hadn’t died in a Paris car crash 13 years ago? What if she had faked her death, popped in brown contact lenses, and moved to the Land of Self-Reinvention, a.k.a. the USA? How would she, you know, feel? (Oh, how Diana misses her children! Oh, how her desperation to be loved has, time and again, turned her into a ninny!) In Untold Story, noted British writer Monica Ali (Brick Lane) entertains the fantasy — a fashionable pop cultural conceit after the success of Curtis Sittenfeld?s superior American Wife — with an empathetic energy that puts a literary gloss on a beachread subject.
