Bettie Crime and Punishment and Brothers K were contemporary to D so not historical fic

As was Doctor Zhivago and Master and Margarita. All GREAT reads though.

message 3: by Bettie (new)

Bettie Nah!

I hate myself for being so pernickerty sometimes!
:O)


message 4: by Misfit (new)

Misfit I'm pretty sure this is my list and not worried about it. Something contemporary NOW, I might fuss.

message 6: by David (new)

David Hmmm . . . I guess most of the ones I voted for were not strictly "historical" when written . . . if you're going to define it like an antique -- "must be (writing about something) 100 years old" -- so sue me.


message 7: by Sb (new)

Sb Nalam a virtual treasure house!!!!


message 8: by Misfit (new)

Misfit My goodness. Love Is Never Past Tense... sure has a lot of votes to be up there with Tolstoy. Just sayin...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You want me to zap it?

It really is borderline to call it historical fiction IMHO.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It also looks to me like it's an author circle at work.

Nooooo. They would never do that.

Namera [The Literary Invertebrate] Does anyone know any books about Catherine I? Not Catherine the Great?


message 14: by Manray9 (new)

Manray9 Konstantin Simonov's Days and Nights by Konstantin Simonov Days and Nights was first published in 1944 -- soon after Stalingrad. It was not historical fiction when published.

Pasternak's Dr. Zhivago wasn't finished until 1956, although he used notes and journals collected over the years. Since it deals primarily with WWI and the Russian Civil War, why wouldn't it be considered historical fiction?
