Paulo Coelho

Date of Birth:




Paulo Coelho is a Brazilian writer. When Coelho was 38, he had a spiritual awakening in Spain and wrote about it in his first book, The Pilgrimage. It was her second book, The Alchemist, that made her famous. He has sold 35 million copies and now writes about one book every two years. Coelho was born on August 24, 1947, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Coelho attended Jesuit schools and was raised by devout Catholic parents. She decided early on that she wanted to be a writer but was disappointed by her parents, who had no future in the profession in Brazil. Coelho's teenage uprising prompted her parents to give her three times asylum, starting when she was 17. "Excuse me," Coelho said. "It happens with love, all the time - when you have this love for someone, but you want that person to change, to be like you. And then love can be very hurtful." In 1987, Coelho wrote a new book, The Alchemist, during the compilation of one of the two weekly errors. The proverbial novel was about a Andalusian shepherd boy following a mysterious journey where he learned to speak "The Language of the World" and thus found his heart's desire. The book attracted little attention at first, until it was suddenly translated into French languages ​​by French traders lists in the early 1990s.
