       The Shadow of the Wind-author Carlos Ruiz Zafón's The Prisoner of Heaven is coming out in English (available in the UK -- get your copy at Amazon.co.uk -- and due out in a few weeks in the US -- pre-order your copy at Amazon.com), and so there are profiles popping up in the English-language press.
       In the Independent on Sunday Christian House hears 'about the inspiration for the Cemetery of Forgotten Books', in Carlos Ruiz Zafón: 'I'm haunted by the history of my city', while in The Age Andrew Stephens profiles him.
