    Historical fiction is interesting when the novels "claim the history of the everyday". . .the pain, sickness, joys, and dreams of people rather than just the glory of the battles and documented events.
    This is why we need historical fiction, I think (and my other love, archaeology). "Real" history too often leaves out everyday life--and women! To me, everyday life is what matters.
