Carlos Ruiz Zafon Book and Novel

Carlos Ruiz Zafon - Author


Carlos Ruiz Zafón was born in Barcelona and grew up under the shadow of Gaudi's Sagrada Familia cathedral, just a block away from the family home. For a few years he lived in Los Angeles, working as a screenwriter, and has published four novels for young-adults before escaping everything to write THE SHADOW OF THE WIND, a novel that has become an international literary phenomenon in over 20 countries. His work has been translated into 17 languages. Now back in Barcelona, he is presently at work on a new novel.

If you like Carlos Ruiz Zafon you might also like to read books by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason, Mark Oldfield and Carl-Johan Vallgren.
