Paulo Coelho Responds to Random House CA’s Excitement on Twitter

Author Paulo Coelho greeted Random House Canada’s enthusiasm about the upcoming English edition of Aleph with a joke: “You should be. You are my publishers…”

Here’s more about the novel: “Coelho reveals how a grave crisis of faith caused him to go in search of a path of spiritual renewal and growth. In order to get close to God again, he decided to start over: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the world. Between March and July 2006, letting himself be guided by signs, he travelled to various continents – Europe, Africa and Asia – on a journey through time and space, through past and present, in search of himself.”

In 2010, Aleph was published in Turkey and Brazil; it topped the bestseller list in Brazil. The title will be released worldwide in September. In March, Coelho polled his blog readers for their opinion on three different covers for the English edition. (via Sarah Wendell)
