Elizabeth Kostova

Sunday, March 18, 2:00 p.m.

Elizabeth Kostova’s The Historian was the first debut novel in US publishing history to land at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list in its first week on sale; it has sold more than three million copies and been translated into 40 languages. Her new novel, The Shadow Land, follows a young American woman who travels to Sofia, Bulgaria, hoping to heal from the loss of her brother. Shortly after arriving, she discovers an urn filled with human ashes and sets out to find its owner, an endeavor that leads to uncovering the secrets of a talented musician who was shattered by oppression, and evolves into a meditation on the painful history of an entire country. Pulitzer Prize–winning author Richard Russo hails the novel as “thrilling.”
