What We're Reading: New Edition of Coelho's "The Alchemist"

Share

You read it, you loved it, and you probably put it on the shelf and haven't picked it up in years. Well, HarperCollins has a new reason to revisit The Alchemist, originally published in 1988: They've turned it into a graphic novel!

The Alchemist: A Graphic Novel

Author: Paulo Coelho, Brazilian author of 26 books -- fun fact: He's the best-selling Portuguese language author of all time!
Genre: Illustrated version of a classic allegorical novel
What Happens: A young Spanish shepherd travels across the Egyptian desert to seek an extravagant treasure, and on the way he encounters a king, a Gypsy woman, and an alchemist, all of whom help point him toward the treasure and, of course, teach him a few life lessons as well. (It is an allegory, after all...)
Why Read It (Again!): The bright, vivid, sometimes even sexy (is that weird to say?) illustrations bring new life to the classic story and remind us why it's one of the best-selling books of all time.
Details: HarperOne, $22.99, November 23
