"If I see a white feather today, that is a sign that God is giving me that I have to write a new book." Literary talk has it that only after seeing a white feather was Brazilian writer Paulo Coehlo compelled to created "The Alchemist." The novel faced a modest success with only 900 copies sold through a small Brazilian publisher. The turning point came in 1994 when HarperCollins acquired the book. Subsequently, "The Alchemist" transformed into a global phenomenon, achieving international best seller by 1998.Throughout his illustrious career and enduring popularity, Coelho maintained unwavering dedication to his craft, diligently churning out novels every couple of years, often inspired by the symbolic encounter of his white feather.
