Adeline Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was an English writer and literary critic, the leading figure of the modernist literature of the first half of the twentieth century.

Diana: Her True Story - In Her Own Words Diana: Her True Story - In Her Own Words Новинка

Diana: Her True Story - In Her Own Words

The sudden and tragic death of Princess Diana has caused the entire world to reflect on how much this singular woman meant to us all. From her fairy-tale courtship, her wedding to Prince Charles, and the birth of her two wonderful boys to the stunning collapse of her marriage and the revelation of her psychological and physical trauma, we witnessed and shared in the wide range of emotions in her life. In the last few years, Diana's dedication to the downtrodden and unloved and her commitment as a mother have only strengthened her hold on our hearts. When Diana: Her True Story was initially published in 1992, it was met with a hail of abuse from the British Establishment. As time passed, however, the magnitude of Diana's marital and personal distress made it clear, even to the greatest doubters, that this book was indeed Diana's true story; and finally, in 1995, she revealed in a BBC interview that she had indirectly cooperated with Andrew Morton. What has not been known, however, until the publication of this new edition, is that Diana: Her True Story was in fact almost entirely based on her own words, supplemented by interviews with her friends. In 1991 and 1992, when this book was first conceived and written, Diana felt trapped and powerless within the royal family. She knew that the truth about her life was submerged under a mountain of royal propaganda. Diana: Her True Story chronicles Diana's unhappiness, which began shortly before her wedding day, and reveals the life o...

J. Conrad The Shadow-Line

Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. Though he did not speak English fluently until his twenties, he was a master stylist, both lush and precise, who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. The Shadow Line tells a story of young sea captain, whose first command brings with it a succession of crises: sea is becalmed, the crew laid low by fewer, and his first mate is convinced that the ship is haunted by the spirit of a previous captain.
