Dan Brown’s “Inferno” – May 14 2013

The four year wait will soon be over. With much fanfare, global bestselling author Dan Brown announced the release of his new book “Inferno” this coming May 14. The book again features Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon in the lead role. This will be Brown’s sixth book after “Digital Fortress,” “Deception Point,” “Angels and Demons,” “The Da Vinci Code,” and “Angels and Demons.”

In a statement, Doubleday Publishing said the book is set in Italy and will center on Dante Alighieri’s controversial work of the title. The publishing giant described this as “one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces.” Brown’s new book will have an initial printing of four million copies and is scheduled to be released simultaneously in the United States and Canada.

Brown explained that although he studied Dante’s Inferno when he was still a student, he only came to appreciate the enduring influence of this work on the modern world when he did research in Florence, Italy. “With this new novel, I am excited to take readers on a journey deep into this mysterious realm…a landscape of codes, symbols, and more than a few secret passageways,” Brown further explained.

When asked during a forum last year why it takes several years before he comes out with a new work, Brown explained that his publisher “wants good books, not quick ones.” Judging from the success of Brown’s last three works, Inferno will surely provide both his fans and critics something to talk about for a long time.
