Elizabeth Kostova discusses her new novel The Shadow Land

From the million copy #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Historian, a novel that blends history and the present in a suspenseful journey that spans three generations and reveals the dark secrets of a family’s—and a nation’s—history.

A young American woman traveling in Sofia, Bulgaria, helps a family into a taxi, only to discover once the car has driven away that she has mistakenly kept one of their bags. She is alarmed to find an urn inside, filled with ashes and engraved with a name, Stoyan Lazarov. Setting out on a journey to track down the Lazarov family and reunite them with their precious package, she finds ever more obstacles in her path even as her determination grows greater, and the mystery behind the significance of the urn deepens. Soon she will realize that this object is tied to the very darkest moments in the nation’s history, and that the stakes behind seeing it safely returned are higher than she could ever have imagined.

 

Elizabeth Kostova is the author of the bestselling novels The Historian 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.
