What do a girl coming of age in Nazi Germany and a bandit stealing maidens in nineteenth-century Italy have in common? More than you probably expect. In this episode, we talk about two historical novels we like -- Markus Zusak's Book Thief (2006) and Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda's Espatolino (1844) -- with references to Mein Kamph (1925), the novels of Sir Walter Scott, and ... American Horror Story: Asylum. After listening, leave us a Facebook comment about why you think history continues to fascinate both writers and readers.
