Napoleon played with writing a romance in his youth, but now his novella—”Clisson and Eugenie“—is actually going to be published, and in English. It feels a little strange to have a man I personally think of as a character in my novels publish his own novel.
I wish him well: “Bon courage, Bonaparte!” Were he alive to take charge of his own promotion, the book would do very well indeed.

That’s the risk of historical fiction–reality and creation so easily collide.
