Truth And Fiction

I subscribe to American Heritage for its historical pieces. I simply don’t care what someone who has done some writing looks upon as his or her “favorite” historical novel. Nor am I impressed by observations on “the power of a historical novel.” Sure, they are easier to write since their authors don’t have to worry too much about attribution. But that is what makes them non-history. Give us the facts. Give us what we have come to expect of American Heritage .
