Elizabeth Kostova Book and Novel

Elizabeth Kostova - Author


Elizabeth Kostova is the New York Times bestselling author of The Historian, which sold over three million copies, and The Swan Thieves. She graduated from Yale and holds an MFA from the University of Michigan, where she won the Hopwood Award for the Novel-in-Progress. Kostova won the 2006 Book Sense Award for Best Adult Fiction and the 2005 Quill Award for Debut Author of the Year for The Historian.

Kostova’s fascination with Bulgaria began when, traveling to the country for research just after college, the Berlin Wall fell the week she arrived. She fell in love with the man who would become her husband, but also fell in love with this “beautiful, battered, and haunted country.” After more than twenty visits, her passion for the place and its history is tangible on every page of her novel.
