About the Author
"A masterpiece of suspense... This is a startlingly intelligent, perceptive and entertaining piece of fiction. It's quite brilliant."--"Daily Mirror" (UK)
"Thoughtful, compassionate... A suspenseful and gripping read."--"Financial Times"
"""Builds to a thrilling and rewarding finish... Daring and engrossing."--"Booklist" (starred review)
"Ali's third-person princess is a very convincing and sympathetic figure... Extremely skillfully done."--"Observer" (UK)
"Haunting and intensely readable, this is something between a thriller and a ghost story." --Lady Antonia Fraser
"Monica Ali has always been a brilliant and provocative writer, but "Untold Story" is not only a gripping read but a compassionate portrait of a woman in turmoil--her finest novel yet."--Gary Shteyngart, author of "Super Sad True Love Story"
"It is always said that Princess Diana was hunted and haunted, that her story contained the seeds of a contemporary myth. It was obvious that only the imagination of a first-rate novelist could master that material and make it fully and unforgettably alive. We now have the book we have been waiting for in Monica Ali's "Untold Story". It is a beautiful, gripping accomplishment, a treat for the heart and the head, and will be a joy to readers who believe in the possibility that a book can transform your basic sense of life."--Andrew O'Hagan, Booker-shortlisted author of "Our Fathers, Be Near Me" and "The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog"
"Ms. Ali builds tension as slickly as any thriller screenwriter: we find ourselves avidly rooting for Lydia to elude her stalker and somehow to hold on to the normal life she has made for herself."--Michiko Kakutani, "New York Times"
"An unapologetic hybrid of a novel, a literary examination of identity and a page-turning thriller, complete with car chase."--"O", the Oprah magazine
"Ali tells her story with unobtrusive, restrained prose... We've long since disappeared into the fiction. Lydia has become her own character, Diana a ghost: naive and vulnerable, self-centered, familiar to us in her self-destruction and her dark fairy-tale life but now entirely real and sympathetic. This remarkable transformation allows Ali to ponder the essence of what makes a person: in this case the sheer tenacity of a clever fighter, both silly and bold -and clearly the author's impetus for taking on, with astounding confidence, the woman who captivated the entrie world."--"San Francisco Chronicle"
"A dazzling feat... All the pistons are firing."--"Washington Post"
"Norman Rockwell couldn't paint a more affectionate portrait of small-town America."--"USA Today"
