PS to Haggadah Post …

People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks (who won a Pulitzer for her 2006 work March) is a work of fiction based on the Sarajevo Hagadah. This is the only significant novel about hagadot I was able to find. One of the earliest illuminated Jewish manuscripts, the priceless antique haggadah serves as the vehicle for a 500-year worldwide journey tracing its ownership in an exciting adventure that takes Hanna Heath, an Australian rare book expert, to Europe in 1996.
