Craig Ferguson on Historical Fiction

I love Bohemian Gospel by Dana Shamble Carpenter, Caleb’s Crossing by Geraldine Brooks, Playing St. Barbara by Marian Szczepanski, and the list goes on and on. I like historical fiction because I get to learn something – the history part – while also filling up on what I need so much from fiction, which is that connection, heart and soul, to another person, place, and time.

But I have to admit that Craig Ferguson, Book of the Month Club’s guest judge for March, does a much better job that I do summing up what is so great about Historical Fiction.  I look forward to reading the book he chose for this month, The Moor’s Account by Laila Lalami.
