The Shadow of the Wind

Серия: "-"

Barcelona, 1945 a great world city lies shrouded in secrets after the war, and a boy mourning the loss of his mother finds solace in his love for an extraordinary book called The Shadow of the Wind, by an author named Julian Carax. When the boy searches for Caraxas other books, it begins to dawn on him, to his horror, that someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book the man has ever written. Soon the boy realizes that The Shadow of the Wind is as dangerous to own as it is impossible to forget, for the mystery of its authoras identity holds the key to an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love that someone will go to any lengths to keep secret.

Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Carlos Ruiz Zafón is a Spanish novelist. Born in Barcelona in 1964, he has lived in Los Angeles, United States, since 1993, and works as a scriptwriter aside from writing novels.

His first novel, "El príncipe de la niebla" ("The Prince of Mist", 1993), earned the Edebé literary prize for young adult fiction. He is also the author of three more young-adult novels, "El palacio de la medianoche" (1994), "Las luces de septiembre" (1995) and "Marina" (1999).

In 2001 he published the novel "La sombra del viento" ("The Shadow of the Wind"), his first "adult" novel, which has sold millions of copies worldwide. Since its publication, "La sombra del viento" has garnered critical acclaim around the world and has won numerous international awards. It has sold more than a million copies in the UK alone. Ruiz Zafón's works have been published in 45 countries and have been translated into more than 30 languages. According to this figures, Ruiz Zafón is the most successful contemporary Spanish writer along with Javier Sierra (published in 42 countries) and Juan Gómez-Jurado (41).

Ruiz Zafón's eagerly awaited second novel, a prequel to the bestselling "The Shadow of the Wind" has been acquired by Weidenfeld & Nicolson and the English edition will be published in hardback in late spring of 2009. It will be called "The Angel's Game" and is set in Barcelona during the 1920s and 1930s. It follows a young writer who is approached by a mysterious figure to write a book. The Spanish edition was published in April 2008 by Planeta. The English edition will be translated by Lucia Graves, daughter of the poet Robert Graves.
