About the Author

Tina Brown was 25 when she became editor-in-chief of England's' oldest glossy, The Tatler, reviving the nearly defunct 270 year old magazine with an attitude and style that gave it a 300 percent circulation rise. She went on to become editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair, and won four National Magazine Awards. In 1992 she became the first female editor of the New Yorker where she raised circulation by 145 percent on the newsstand and was honored with 4 George Polk Awards, 5 Overseas Press Club Awards, and 10 National Magazine Awards, including a 1995 award for General Excellence, the first in the magazine's history. Ms. Brown was awarded C.B.E. (Commander of the British Empire) from Queen Elizabeth in 2000. She is married to Sir Harold Evans. The couple have two children and reside in New York.

Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE DIANA CHRONICLES

"Amazingly detailed . . . Brown's jam-packed, juicy roll in the high cotton is...a walloping good read."
--Washington Post

"[An] insanely readable and improbably profound new biography."
--Chicago Tribune

"Intensely well researched and an unputdownable read."
--Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren

"It's Dianamite!"
--Tom Wolfe

"Tina Brown knows this world much better than many who inhabit it.... This book resembles the Queen in its calm, credible, quietly chattering view of life inside the royal hothouse."
--The New York Times

"[Tina Brown] tells the story fluently, with engrossing detail on every page, and with the mastery of tone that made her Tatler famous for being popular with the people it was laughing at."
--The New Yorker

"The Diana Chronicles, by Tina Brown, former editor of Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, peels many layers of...mystery away and even makes the old horror stories of [Diana's] life seem fresh...Brown gives them new vigor, with insights based on her own exhaustive research and a wickedly canny, celebrity-trained eye for detail."
--Boston Globe

"The book's greatest attraction...is its sheer wealth of detail, by turns salacious, vinegary, depressing, and hilarious...a psychodrama, a morality play, a pageant of recklessness and revenge, of passion and pity, of loneliness and looniness."
--The Wall Street Journal

"The Diana Chronicles...has enough of Diana's hairpin personality turns, emotional drops, and gleeful summits to be a Disneyland thrill ride...Brown reminds us of her instantly intimate, magical presence."
--Los Angeles Times
