An Authorlink Exclusive AUDIO Interview With Douglas Carlton Abrams
Author of The Lost Diary of Don Juan, A Novel (Atria 2007)

June 2007

Like millions of people, Douglas Carlton Abrams wanted to know the secrets of passionate love. He wondered how any man or woman could stay happily, passionately, and devotedly married to one person for a lifetime. So he turned to Don Juan for answers.

The stunning result is THE LOST DIARY OF DON JUAN, Abrams' debut historical thriller, released in May 2007 from Atria/Simon & Schuster.

"Doug Abrams writes with such polish, immediacy and authority, you pause to admire his mastery of narrative," said New York Times Bestselling author Frank McCourt. "The book, like its hero, is a seducer."

Doug has co-authored several nonfiction books and is a former editor at the University of California Press and Harper San Francisco. But being a publishing professional had its own special drawbacks. In this AUDIO interview, Doug talks about how he went about researching the life of Don Juan, his inner battles in writing the book, and what he has learned about staying passionately in love.

Here we learn what the LOST DIARY is about and why Doug Abrams decided to write Don Juan's diary.
