Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho is a phenomenally successful Brazilian writer of spiritually inflected novels. Coelho had a troubled childhood and was committed to an asylum three times by his strict Catholic parents for his unorthodox behaviour. Before becoming a writer Coelho tried his hand at a number of professions, such as lawyer, songwriter, actor, journalist and theatre director. His spiritual awakening came when he walked the 500 mile Road of Santiago de Compostela in 1986, recounting his epiphany in 1987’s The Pilgrimage. The following year, and still inspired by his experience in Spain, he produced The Alchemist, an allegory about an Andalusian shepherd boy’s journey to the Egyptian Pyramids. Initially a slow seller, The Alchemist became a worldwide bestseller when an English translation was published in 1994. It is currently the most translated book in the world by a living author. Since then, Coelho has averaged one book every two years, via his ritual of beginning work on a novel when he sees a white feather in the January of an odd year.
