Praise Her, Praise Diana by Anne Rothman-Hicks and Ken Hicks is a book which has two realities, one of the anti-hero Diana and the second of her creator Maggie Edwards. Maggie Edwards is sitting in a business meeting where she is being pressured for a sequel to a best selling novel to publish as a feature in a magazine. What she offers in lieu of the sequel is a book titled Diana. As the meeting progresses, an email surfaces, with detailed photos of a crime scene similar to what was described in the book. What was originally thought to be a public relations push for the new book turned out to be reality. As the book progresses, Diana becomes less of a monster and becomes more of a goddess, with ardent followers from housewives to extreme feminist groups. Diana’s prey become afraid as they are physically and verbally assaulted all in her name. The second reality is chapters from Maggie’s book detailing Diana’s brutal assault and why she is seeking justice.
Praise Her, Praise Diana by Anne Rothman-Hicks and Ken Hicks is a masterfully crafted book where two realities are twisted into a gorgeous piece of art. Although there is more violence in Maggie’s reality, Diana’s reality details one brutal attack on a microscopic level. On top of which, as you progress through the book, you are constantly wondering who the real Diana is, and on a more philosophical level you are left wondering who the real victims are.
