Turkish shepherd post from famous writer Paulo Coelho
World-renowned Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho shared a photo of a Turkish shepherd holding his famous novel The Alchemist yesterday and said, "A Turkish shepherd is reading something about an Andalusian shepherd."
The Alchemist novel, considered one of Paulo Coelho's classics, was published in 1988 and was described as a 'phenomenon' by critics. The novel, which has been translated into 26 languages in 42 countries, tells the fairy tale life of the Andalusian shepherd Santiago, who left Spain to search for treasure in the Egyptian Pyramids.
Along with the photograph of the 'Turkish shepherd' holding the novel, which was published in Turkish in 1996, Coelho said, "A Turkish shepherd reading about an Andalusian shepherd. Every person on earth has a treasure waiting for him. ALCHEMIST.”
