The Josephine B trilogy is the fictionalised journals of Napoleon's first wife. The first book chronicles her early life, her first marriage, her experiences during the French Revolution and the terror afterwards, and how she met Napoleon. It's well-researched, empathetic, and paints a very different picture of Josephine than average Napolenon documentaries.

Blonde: A Novel | Joyce Carol Oates

At 700+ pages, one should get immense credit for creating a propulsive page turner such as BLONDE. A hybrid of fact &fiction, Oates has crafted a mythic & poetic story about Monroe from her innocent & heartbreaking beginnings, through the sexist &misogynistic studio system, and to the well-known tragic end.Through it all, Oates dispels the misconception of Monroe as just another "dumb blonde" by revealing the intelligence &ambition of Norma Jean.

The author states that she based her fictionalized account of Rosalind Franklin‘s journey through her career, on the book by Anne Sayre, Rosalind Franklin and DNA, a non-fiction account. I plan to read her book when I can find it. This is one of those books that stays with me, is connected to the greater world now, & inspires me to keep digging & learn more!

“He will never die. His love, his genius, the great beauty he has created will go on forever…” The best book I‘ve read this year. Heartbreaking and inspiring all in one. What hit me the most about this novel is that it‘s not just a biography of Van Gogh‘s life, but demonstrates the profound bond and love between two brothers.

tpixie I‘ve heard his brother really supported him. What a great relationship! 3w
