Dan Brown is the author of bestselling novels such as “The Da Vinci Code” and “Angels & Demons.” His next Robert Langdon novel “Inferno” is scheduled to be released on May 14, 2013.
Robert Langdon is a fictional Harvard University professor of religious iconology and symbology. He is usually involved in cases that combine history, art, codes, symbols and conspiracy theories.
Once again in Italy Robert Langdon is drawn to a world centered on Dante’s “Inferno,” one of literature’s most famous and mysterious masterpieces. His newest adversary pulls him into a world of classic art, secret passageways and futuristic science. The answers he’s looking for can only be found in Dante’s epic poem.
Dan Brown’s early years were spent teaching English at his alma mater. After reading Sidney Sheldon’s “The Doomsday Conspiracy” he was inspired to write thrillers. His first novel “Digital Fortress” was published in 1998. “The Da Vinci Code” (his fourth novel) became an instant bestseller and helped to peak interest in his first novels.
His books have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been translated into numerous languages. In 2005 he made TIME magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people of the year. “The Da Vinci Code” and “Angels & Demons” have been adapted into films.
