Betty on the News: The Da Vinci Code Author’s New Book Released Today
Dan Brown debuts The Lost Symbol
In an exclusive interview with Today show correspondent Matt Lauer, The Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown dishes about his rise to fame and his new book The Lost Symbol, which stars his infamous hero Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, and is being released Tuesday.
The man behind the aforementioned masterpieces – as well as Angels and Demons – says that being a best-selling author definitely has its advantages.
“One of the great luxuries of having written The Da Vinci Code is that it gave me access to all kinds of things I never had access to before,” he said. “You have access, and simultaneously, you often need to do your research in other ways, under other names or through other routes.”
Five million copies of The Lost Symbol have been printed, which makes Brown a tad stressed, though he feels that his fans will enjoy the new book.
“There’s some pressure. And I have delivered again, I believe,” Brown stated. “I’m thrilled with this book. This is a book that I would love to read.” (msnbc.com)
