"Daniel Kalla has written the best sort of historical fiction, in which individual lives are shaken by the tectonic forces of history?and then miraculously reconstructed."
- David Layton, author of The Bird Factory and Motion Sickness ()
DANIEL KALLA practises emergency medicine in Vancouver, B.C. He is the author of six previous novels, including five scientific/medical thrillers. The idea for his first book, Pandemic, sprang from his clinical experience in facing the SARS crisis of 2003. Kalla’s books have been translated into ten languages; his novel Pandemic has been optioned for film. Kalla received his M.D. from the University of British Columbia and lives in Vancouver.
