Writing well-known real-life characters presents its own unique challenges and opportunities, a craft deftly handled by Courtney Maum (Costalegre) and Thomas Mallon (Landfall) in their new novels. Bringing to life Peggy Guggenheim and George W. Bush, Maum and Mallon tackle the art of innovating on the known to build fictional characters out of familiar identities.
