Yes, this is on-topic as long as the question is about the work itself and the question would be on-topic if it were asked about an equivalent fictional book. However, questions about the facts behind a work of literary non-fiction books, that are not intended to aid in the understanding of the work, are off topic and probably belong on a different Stack Exchange.
