O Aleph - The Aleph The new Novel “When I was twenty-two, I devoted myself to the study of magic. I followed various paths, walked too close to the edge of the abyss, slipped and fell, gave up and returned to the path. I imagined that by the time I reached fifty-nine, I would be close to achieving the paradise and absolute peace that I think I see in the smiles of Buddhist monks. However, the search for peace has its price, and I ask myself: just how far am I prepared to go?” The Aleph marks a return to his beginnings for Paulo Coelho. In a frank and surprising personal story, which draws the reader in from the very first page, he reveals how a grave crisis of faith caused him to go in search of a path of spiritual renewal and growth. In order to get close to God again, he decided to start over: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the world. Between March and July 2006, letting himself be guided by signs, he travelled to various continents - Europe, Africa and Asia – on a journey through time and space, through past and present, in search of himself. As the journey progresses, Paulo gradually emerges from his isolation, sheds both ego and pride and opens himself up to friendship, love, faith and forgiveness, unafraid to confront the inevitable challenges of life.

“I made this journey not in order to find an answer to what was lacking in my life, but in order to be the king of my own world again. I am once more connected to myself and to the magical world around me. That is what makes life interesting: believing in treasures and in miracles.” Format: 140x210 mm n Pages: 255 pages

As Valkirias The Valkyries The unpublished Novel It's time for the individual. Whose side are you on? The battle for the world is waged within each one of us.

Paulo and Chris go on a spiritual quest to the arid and supposedly empty Mojave Desert. The Valkyries is the story of two people struggling to understand each other, but, most of all, it contains a powerful message about forgiving our past and believing in our future. When we accept and recognize ourselves and our strengths and weaknesses, then we are ready to change the world. In this novel – which was ahead of its time when it was first published and continues to be highly relevant today – Paulo Coelho writes candidly about his battle with fear and self-doubt. It was, he says, a difficult book to write because it described feelings and episodes from his own life, and marks the fragile gap between the magical tradition to which he belongs and the man he really is.

“A new war is about to break out, from which no one will escape. We will see two armies. On the one side, those who still believe in the human race, in mankind’s hidden powers, and who know that our next step must involve the nurturing of individual gifts. On the other side, will be those who believe that life is about attaining material goals, and nothing more.” Format: 140x210 mm n Pages: 239 n Rights sold in 22 languages

O Alquimista The Alchemist The Graphic Novel

“Coelho’s words capture the essence of the mind and heart connection in this soul-expanding journey. With the graphic novel adding in another layer, a visual impact, it is an opportunity to rediscover the brilliance and impact of the story, and to reach new audiences.” – David Dabel, Sea Lion Books

“It has long been a dream of mine to see The Alchemist published as a graphic novel. I had received several proposals from publishers before, but none of them came anywhere near the the image I had in my mind. When I saw Sea Lion Books’ proposal, however, it took me less than half an hour to make my decision.” – Paulo Coelho Idea: Sea Lion Books, www.sealionbooks.com
