Carlos Ruiz Zafon Author Biography
There was no special fanfare when Spanish publisher, Planeta, published Carlos Ruiz Zafón's fifth book (but his first for adults) The Shadow of the Wind in 2002. The book took off, spending more than 60 weeks on the bestseller lists in Spain, and has been translated into at least 20 languages. As for his earlier books, Zafón says that writing novels for young adults was 'never my natural genre', even though his first, El príncipe de la niebla (The Prince of Mist, 1993), earned him the Edebé literary prize for young
adult fiction (it appears that none of his YA books are available in English).
