An essential companion to the inspirational classic The Alchemist, filled with timeless stories of reflection and rediscovery.

From one of the greatest writers of our age comes a collection of stories and parables unlocking the mysteries of the human condition. Gathered from Paulo Coelho’s daily column of the same name, Maktub, meaning “it is written,” invites seekers on a journey of faith, self-reflection, and transformation. As Paulo Coelho explains, ‘Maktub is not a book of advice—but an exchange of experiences.’

Each story offers an illuminated path to see life and the lives of our fellow people around the world in new ways, allowing us to tap into universal truths about our collective and individual humanity. As Coelho writes, ‘a man who seeks only the light, while shirking his responsibilities, will never find illumination. And one who keep his eyes fixed upon the sun . . . ends up blind.’ In these wise tales akin to Zen koans and other mysteries of the universe, there are talking snakes, old women climbing mountains, disciples querying their masters, Buddha in dialogue, mysterious hermits, and many saints.

Following the path of his previous internationally bestselling works, this thoughtful collection of short, inspirational pieces, introduced in a foreword by the author and illustrated with black-and-white line art throughout, will engage seekers of all ages and backgrounds.

Maktub (meaning “it is written”) is not a book of advice—but an exchange of experiences, a journey of faith, self-reflection, and transformation. Every few decades a book is published that changes the lives of its readers forever. This is such a book – a beautiful parable about learning to listen to your heart, read the omens strewn along life’s path and, above all, follow your dreams. The captivating account of Coelho’s pilgrimage along the road to Santiago. 150 short passages detail the spiritual and practical elements necessary for the attainment of the Personal Legend—the life-long path to a fulfillment of a dream. Coelho makes a 40-day quest in the Mojave Desert with his wife and discovers a poignant message about letting go of the past and believing in the future.

A magical blend of compelling action, exotic locations and intriguing characters, told with Paulo’s characteristic power and insight. A daring modern fable about the nature of love and sex. A haunting and redemptive story about obsession, The Zahir explores its potential to fulfill our dreams, and to destroy them. A stranger arrives with a notebook and eleven gold bars, searching for the answer to a question that torments him: Are human beings, in essence, good or evil? A moving and inspiring story about how we can transcend even the most terrible ordeals by keeping faith and love alive.
