Un libro repleto de historias atemporales de reflexión y autodescubrimiento, compañero esencial del clásico inspirador El Alquimista.

«...una antología de más de 170 relatos cortos traducidos al español del portugués de Coelho, cada uno de los cuales transmite un mensaje profundo a través de una narración metafórica... En estas páginas, los lectores encontrarán un caudal de verdades atemporales, así como orientación». —Booklist

Paulo Coelho, uno de los escritores más célebres y aclamados de nuestros tiempos, nos regala una extraordinaria colección de historias y parábolas que explora los misterios de la condición humana. Esta compilación de columnas periodísticas publicadas por Coelho bajo el título de «Maktub», que significa «está escrito», invita a los lectores a un viaje de fe, autorreflexión y transformación. En palabras del autor: «Maktub no es un libro de consejos, sino un intercambio de experiencias».

Cada una de estas historias ilumina un camino que nos permite ver la vida y las vidas de nuestros semejantes en todo el mundo bajo un nuevo prisma. Estos sabios relatos nos ofrecen la perspectiva de serpientes que hablan, ancianas que escalan montañas, discípulos que interrogan a sus maestros, conversaciones con Buda, ermitaños misteriosos y santos que abordan los misterios del universo y las verdades sobre nuestra humanidad colectiva e individual.

 Siguiendo la línea de sus aclamados bestsellers internacionales, esta cuidadosa colección de piezas breves e inspiradoras cautivará a lectores de todas las edades y procedencias.

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. These wise tales offer the perspective of talking snakes, old women climbing mountains, disciples querying their masters, Buddha in dialogue, mysterious hermits, and many saints addressing the mysteries of the universe.

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.

One of the most influential writers of our time, Paulo Coelho is the author of thirty international bestsellers, including The Alchemist, Warrior of the Light, Brida, Veronika Decides to Die, and Eleven Minutes. He is a member of the Brazilian Academy of Letters and a United Nations Messenger of Peace. Paulo is the recipient of 115 international prizes and awards, among them, the Chevalier de l'Ordre National de la Légion d'Honneur (Legion of Honor). Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1947, he soon discovered his vocation for writing. He worked as a director, theater actor, songwriter, and journalist. In 1986, a special meeting led him to make the pilgrimage to Saint James Compostela (in Spain). The Road to Santiago was not only a common pilgrimage but a turning point in his existence. A year later, he wrote The Pilgrimage, an autobiographical novel that is considered the beginning of his literary career. He lives in Geneva, Switzerland.
