Praise for Diva:

‘I was blown away by Diva. Beautiful, visceral, tragic, gutting’ – Miranda Cowley Heller, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Paper Palace

‘The spectacular Daisy Goodwin has written Diva, an epic novel about Maria Callas in love that hits every note and soars off the page. You will root for Callas as she navigates her dynamic career and a love affair that will break her heart. Told with tenderness and power, this is bravura storytelling in the hands of a master’ — Adriana Trigiani

‘I’ve been completely overwhelmed by Diva: by the pleasure of reading such a marvellous ardent, romantic, yet utterly worldly book… Quick, where are my Callas records…’ – Lady Antonia Fraser

‘With its glamour, celebrity and heartbreak, this is the unstoppable story of ambition and desire that enchantress Daisy Goodwin was born to write’- Lucy Worsley

‘When Ms. Goodwin conjures the craft and grace of the hardworking singer who traced each bel canto phrase like a sinuous, unbroken ‘line of ink’ she does it well… Diva paints in bold, primary colors… [while exhibiting] subtler touches as Callas squanders the irreplaceable ‘gold coin’ of her unique talent.’ —Wall Street Journal
