Farrar, Straus and Company
In 2019, most folks know what fan fiction is, and this book definitely falls into that category. I have never read a book quite like Madame Castel’s Lodger, a semi-factual, semi-fictional biography of Confederate General P. T. G. Beauregard. Digging up old books that once were popular may seem like an odd hobby, but this particular volume reminds me of why I do it. It is truly an homage to Beauregard and gives some insight into his character only possible if the writer is southern herself.
