The BookViral Review:

A wholly original read, ‘Diana’s Letter (If Diana had lived) showcases Serdar Atmaca’s sophisticated and penetrating prose as he peppers his work with powerfully crafted imagery, which pulls you into his story.

 

The British people loved Diana because she seemed like a genuine person. She was never afraid to make mistakes, and she owned them. She did not try to be someone she was not. She spoke in a very British way, laughed in a very British way, and always remained humble when things were going well but she had an undeniable broader appeal and this is what Atmaca successfully taps into.

 

Atmaca doesn’t make the mistake of treating his readers like deferential subjects and with events revolving around Diana’s humanitarian visit to Turkey he can explore her multi-faceted nature. In Atmaca’s own words “It adheres to a solitary temporal trajectory, albeit with temporal undulations, offering the reader a cultural voyage through an unfamiliar past” and this is certainly an apt description. It is an intimate speculative read that stays as close as it can to everything we know about Diana but at the same time, Atmaca infuses his descriptions of Diana’s Turkish visit with a poetic extravagance that engenders much reflection.

 

In many ways, her death was the end of an era where you could admire someone for embodying kindness and humility without seeming fake or artificial and here Atmaca draws out her natural ability to make people feel comfortable like they were the most important person in the world to her at that moment.

 

As Diana’s tour progresses Atmaca reminds us that it’s okay to be different. The hospitality she receives is a reflection of the importance that Turkish people place on community and family whilst the sites of her engagements reflect the country’s rich cultural heritage.

 

An embroidery of ideas thoughtfully explored and beautifully conveyed, ‘Diana’s Letter (If Diana had lived)’ is undoubtedly a recommended read.

Brenham writes with the authoritative voice of his experience as a Texas law enforcement officer for over twenty years and it’s to his credit that his plot stands in contrast to many of today’s thrillers which often seem simple-minded and lacking in genuine depth.

The Occult -why the fascination with dark fiction?

While the occult is a broad umbrella, hiding its many forms under its silky black folds, it’s concepts have endured through time, enjoying many a resurgence through the ages. The term ‘occultism’, is relatively new, not used in French or English literature, for instance, until the 19th Century, although the term ‘occult sciences’ was commonly used in the 16th Century to describe practices such as astrology, alchemy, mysticism, and natural magic.
