Read more about the new Netflix Bridgerton series coming later this year based on Julia Quinn’s series. Here are the cast and an interesting article, commenting on the casting versus reality in the historical romance genre. Talia Hibbert makes a good point. Read below.
“No-one cares that the historical romance genre is built on a throne of lies, because it’s bloody romance! The clue is in the name! These! Stories! Are! Romanticised! They are, like all fiction, mere constructs of reality based on the author’s perception of their audience’s desires. And that’s okay! Except, apparently, when it comes to people of colour.”
Interesting article. Netflix has picked up the first two seasons. Diana is working on another book. This article was published in Oprah Magazine on May 15. Follow link to read. Though not a true “historical romance,” as even Diana admits, I’m sure readers will enjoy the news.
Gabaldon is currently working on the series’ ninth book titled Go Tell the Bees I’m Gone.
