Diana: The Goddess Who Hunts Alone by Carlos Fuentes

There is a reason why the French cover of this fictional novel, by acclaimed Mexican author Carlos Fuentes, bears the image of Jean Seberg. Although it is a work of fiction, the main character, and many of the things that happen in the book, are closely modelled after Jean's own life -- and, most centrally, her alleged affair with Fuentes himself. The novel takes place in the 60s and is graced by appearanced by William Styron and Luis Bunuel,among others. Highly praised by critics - it is an intriguing work of serious fiction about actress whose life was more mysterious than the plot of any bestseller.

Jean Seberg (November 13, 1938 – September 8, 1979) was a small town girl from the midwest who shot to stardom at the age of 19 in the title role of Otto Preminger’s Saint Joan. Her most iconic screen appearance came two years later when she starred in Jean-Luc Godard’s groundbreaking New Wave classic, A bout de souffle. Despite her success she had a turbulant private life and tragically committed suicide in Paris at the age of 40.
