Dan Brown is the author of numerous books, now widely known for his controversial hit The Da Vinci Code, which has been converted into a major motion picture.
Dan Brown was a relatively unknown author until he hit it big with The Da Vinci Code.
In an episode of QI, Stephen Fry described Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code as "Loose stool water, arse gravy of the worst kind."
"Hey bud how was your weekend?"
"Awful! Dan Brown all weekend. I couldn't get more than ten foot from the pan."
