Review quote

'Adultery perfectly illustrates the faint line between madness and insanity, happiness and unhappiness as well as the eternal search for our own "personal legend".' -- The Daily Express 'Paulo Coelho's books have had a life-enhancing impact on millions of people.' -- The Times

About Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho's life remains the primary source of inspiration for his books. He has flirted with death, escaped madness, dallied with drugs, withstood torture, experimented with magic and alchemy, studied philosophy and religion, read voraciously, lost and recovered his faith and experienced the pain and pleasure of love. In searching for his own place in the world, he has
discovered answers for the challenges that everyone faces. He believes that, within ourselves, we have the necessary strength to find our own destiny.

His novel The Alchemist has sold more than 65 million copies and has been cited as an inspiration by people as diverse as Malala Yousafzai and Pharrell Williams. Paulo Coelho's books have sold more than 175 million copies worldwide. He is the writer with the most followers on social media and is the most translated living author in the world. He has won 115 international prizes and awards, has been a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters since 2002 and in 2007 was named a United Nations Messenger of Peace. Susan Denaker's extensive theatre credits include numerous plays in the West End of London, national tours, many English Rep companies, including a season with Alan Ayckbourn's company in Scarborough.
