Historical fiction depicting real-life historical figures can be hit or miss for me.

This is one of the reasons that Picasso's Lovers, the 2024 release from Jeanne Mackin, works so well. She authentically portrays one of art's most important figures, making him simultaneously alluring and despicable. Find out below what worked and what didn't work this historical fiction fan.
