About the Author
Edward Rutherfurd was born in Salisbury, England, and educated at Cambridge University and Stanford University in California. His first bestselling novel, Sarum, is based on the history of Salisbury and Stonehenge. Russka, his second novel, recounted the sweeping history of Russia. London tells the two-thousand-year story of the great city, bringing all of the richness of London's past unforgettably to life. The Forest was set in England's ancient "New Forest." A former resident of London and New York City, Edward Rutherfurd has had a home in Dublin for more than ten years. He has two children.
"Sweeping . . . History has never been so fun to read."
"In the tradition of James Michener, Rutherfurd unfurls more than three centuries of the city's history as seen through the eyes of the descendants of [the] van Dyck and Master [families]--and the many other colorful characters he introduces along the way."
--Detroit Free Press "Incredible storytelling . . . Readers will fall in love with the iconic city."
--The Post and Courier "[A] riotous, multilayered portrait."
--The Washington Post
