    David Ebershoff

    David Ebershoff is the author of three bestselling novels and a short story collection. His debut, THE DANISH GIRL, won the Rosenthal Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Lambda Literary Award, and an American Library Association Book Award. It is being adapted into a feature film with Nicole Kidman. His second novel, PASADENA, was named a Wall Street Journal Editor’s Pick, a Chicago Tribune Best Book of the Year, and became a New York Times bestseller. His short story collection, THE ROSE CITY, won the Ferro-Grumley Award and was a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award.

    His third novel, THE 19TH WIFE, was an immediate international bestseller, landing on the New York Times bestseller list and reaching #1 in Britain. The book was a finalist for the Ferro-Grumley Award, the Utah Book Award, and the Galaxy British Book Award. It has half a million copies in print in English alone.
