Abstract:

Paulo Coelho: A Warrior's Life is the first-ever biography of the man whose books have sold an astounding 100 million copies worldwide, making him one of the best-selling authors of all time. Paulo Coelho's life begins with the complicated birth in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in August 1947. He was known as the "boy who was born dead" and who ultimately survived against all odds. Before he became internationally known as the worldwide best-selling author, Paulo lived many different lives. He flirted with suicide, was committed by his parents to insane asylum, suffered the brutality of electric shock therapy, dove into drugs, tried several varieties of sex, met the devil, spent time in prison, helped revolutionize Brazilian rock with musician Raul Seixas, and finally rediscovered his face in 1986 as he walked the sacred Road to Santiago de Compostela, a medieval pilgrim's route between France and Spain. Coelho would later describe this life-changing spiritual experience in his first book, The Pilgrimage. The following year, The Alchemist established his worldwide reputation. The novel has already achieved the status of a universally admired modern classic. Now, for the first time, discover the life story of one of the most widely read and adored authors of our time. - Jacket flap.

Traces the noted author's roots in Brazil from his time as a musician and pop lyricist to his wild days of rock and roll and to the publication of his novel "The Alchemist."
