Philippa Gregory and a new Non-Fiction Release for 2011

Books that make you go hum is an understatement with this book. What the heck a non-fiction book by Philippa Gregory? This is going to be interesting but it is a long way off until we get the official down low on the new release.

Releasing September 6th 2011
The Women of the Cousins' War: The Duchess, the Queen, and the King's Mother
by Philippa Gregory and  Michael Jones

"#1 New York Times bestselling author Philippa Gregory and two historians present a must-have non-fiction book for both fans and scholars.

About the Author Philippa Gregory is the author of several New York Times bestselling novels, including The Other Boleyn Girl, The Queen’s Fool, The Virgin’s Lover, The Constant Princess, The Boleyn Inheritance, The Other Queen, and now The Cousins’ War books which include The White Queen and The Red Queen. She lives in England.

David Baldwin taught history at the Universities of Leicester and Nottingham for many years, and is the author of four books dealing with people and events of the Wars of the Roses.

Michael Jones did his PhD on the Beaufort family, and subsequently taught at the University of South West England, the University of Glasgow and Winchester College. He is a fellow of the Royal Historical Society and now works freelance as a writer and media presenter. He is the author of six books, including The King's Mother, a highly-praised biography of Margaret Beaufort shortlisted for the Whitfield Prize"

  1. I wonder how much of the writing Gregory is actually doing for this book. Sometimes you wonder with these collaborative efforts if the more famous author's name is on the book just to get the sales. I'd love to hear that she's a very active participant in the project.

  2. Rosanne that is exactly what I was hummmmmm-ing about. I am really not sure how this one will go over. There are so so many HF readers out there that do not like her because she says she is a historian and she is a little off sometimes on the facts. I think I am going to have to get this one just to see and try to find out exactly how much of it she did write. It would be nice if she played a large part in it but I think we will have to wait and see.

  3. Sounds like a book I'll need to read. Will be nice having that information all in one place.

  4. Librarypat, that was my first thought too. I wonder if it will be like other non-fictions and have pictures and more stuff in it. It would be nice. This one is for sure on my watch list.
