Paulo Coelho’s inspirational global bestseller now available in te reo Māori.
Paulo Coelho’s masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different – and far more satisfying – than he ever imagined. The Alchemist teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognising opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path. And, most importantly, to follow our dreams.
With over 85 million copies sold around the world and translated into more languages than any other book by a living author, The Alchemist has established itself as a modern classic, now brilliantly translated into te reo Māori by Hēmi Kelly.
Te Kaituhi / Author
Nō te tau 1947 i whānau mai ai te kaituhi nō Parīhi, a Paulo Coelho, i Rio de Janeiro. He kaiwhakaari, he kaiwhakatangitangi hoki ia i mua, ā, nō te ekenga ōna ki te toru tekau mā iwa ka arahina ia ki tāna mahi hei kaituhi i tētahi haerenga tapu i te ara o Camino de Santiago. Nā te iti o te hokona o tana pukapuka tuatahi, o The Alchemist, i whakatau ai tana kaiwhakaputa ki te whakarere i te pakimaero nei. Engari i nui ake te paingia o tā Coelho mahi e ngā kaipānui i roto i te wā, ā, nāwai rā ka puta mai hei pukapuka kaha nei te hokona i te ao katoa. Nuku atu i te 230 miriona ngā pukapuka a Paulo Coelho kua hokona puta noa i te ao, ā, nuku atu i te 427 wiki e kitea ana ia i tā te New York Times rārangi o ngā pukapuka e kaha nei te hokona. Huri i te ao, kua whakawhitihia āna pukapuka ki ngā reo e 82, ā, kua whakaputahia i ngā whenua 170. Hei tā Kenzaburō Ōe, hei tā te toa i te Nobel Prize in Literature, ‘Kei te mōhio a Paulo Coelho ki te kura huna o te toiwhitiiho ā-tuhituhi.’
Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1947, the Brazilian author Paulo Coelho was an actor and rock musician until, at thirty-nine, a pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago led him to begin his life as a writer. Slow initial sales of his second book, The Alchemist, convinced his publisher to drop the novel, but Coelho’s masterpiece grew with readers over time to become a huge global bestseller. Paulo Coelho’s books have now sold more than 230 million copies worldwide and have been on the New York Times bestseller list for more than 427 consecutive weeks. Around the world, they have been translated into eighty-two languages and published in 170 countries. As Kenzaburō Ōe, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature commented, ‘Paulo Coelho knows the secret of literary Alchemy.’
