Re: Historical Novel Society Rosenblatt Book Pulled
- It's a sad state of affairs, for sure. Sad for the ghost, for the agent, and for everyone else who worked so hard on this. Andrea Hurst is my agent, and she's a class act. As a ghost myself, I know how hard the writer worked, and for what?

Interesting blurb on the news just now. Peter Rosenblatt's latest book was pulled. It seems his story about a German holocaust survivor's courtship of his future wife was based on unlikely circunstances. The news story reports the location of where the lovers would meet was in front of an SS barracks.
Not only has the publisher pulled the book, the reporter says some members of the story's main character's family have refused to talk to Rosenblatt [because of his liberties with the truth and fact].

- Thanks, Gina and Susanne, for your kind words. And yes indeedy I know
you're moderating the YA panel, Susanne--I'd been offered a seat on
the panel before I added up my pennies and realized I can't make it. I
am double-plus disappointed all around.
