Historical Fiction Has Rules - PAH!!!
15 September 2009 in The Mistress of Nothing
I’m beginning to get very annoyed by this mini-trend of folks slagging me off over ‘historical truth’ in historical fiction; when Antony Beevor published his piece in the Guardian, I figured the best thing was to remain schtum and let him have his say. A man needs to be able to defend his great-grandma, after all. But now someone has taken up this baton and run with it in the Globe & Mail newspaper.
So, I will marshall my thoughts and reply via this blog in the next few days.
Pah! That’s all I’ll say for the time being.
