Real People in Fiction

Calling all non-fiction readers out there! Did you know that there are novels written about real people? I am a fiction reader myself but I love coming across fictionalized stories about real people. Most authors who write these tales do hours of research on their real protagonist. Neat huh? Here is a list of books you may want to try:

The Girl with a Pearl Earring (about the artist Vermeer)
The Autobiography of Fidel Castro
Bombshell (about Marilyn Monroe)
The Secret Adventures of Charlotte Bronte (about the Bronte sisters)
Emily's Ghost (about Emily Bronte)
Castle in the Forest (about the Hitler family)
In Secret Service (about Hitler)
Mozart's Ghost
Eleanor vs. Ike (about Eleanor Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower)
Becoming Madame Mao
The Other Boleyn Girl (about Mary Boleyn)

Enjoy!
