Hi Claire
Re 'The Group', it's historical because it's set in the 1930s and it was written in the 1960s. So it was historical when it was written and even more historical now. The only criterion for a historical novel is that when it was written, it was set in a previous era. It doesn't have to be about major political events or characters, just set in the past.
I don't expect many people to vote for it, but I try to give a variety of options.

hi justin the list looks great but i dont see how you reckon the group fufills your book club criteria,its a great book but frankly is an original chick lit. however you could consider james baldwin in the same genre..
