Elizabeth Kostova is the internationally bestselling author of The Historian, which sold over three million copies, and The Swan Thieves. She lives in the US.
Elizabeth Kostova’s fascination with Bulgaria began when she travelled there just after college, on the week the Berlin Wall came down. While there, she met the man who became her husband but admits she lost her heart to this ‘beautiful, battered, and haunted country.’ After more than twenty visits, her passion for the place and its history has founds its expression in The Shadow Land.
