Literary phenom Elizabeth Kostova, one of Ann Arbor’s own, is a writer’s dream come true. The Historian, her 642 page epic story of the unlife and times of Dracula, received a $2 million advance and opened on the New York Times bestseller list in the No. 1 slot. Released in Large Print, audiobook, as well as in regular print, The Historian will soon be available in more than two dozen languages. And oh, yes, Sony has the film rights.
Kostova, a graduate of Yale with an MFA from the University of Michigan, spent 10 years blending the history of Eastern Europe and the countless threads of Dracula lore into an irresistible four-generation saga. Not to be missed.
