ALEPH. Translated from the Portuguese by Margaret Jull Costa

New York: Knopf, 2011. First American Edition, 1st Printing. Hardcover. A signed limited edition with the author's signature on a tipped in page. A remarkable journey of self-discovery. Like the main character in 'The Alchemist', Paulo is facing a grave crisis of faith. As he seeks a path of spiritual renewal and growth, he decides to begin again: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the landscapes around him. Setting off to Africa, and then to Europe and Asia via the Trans-Siberian Railway, he initiates a journey to revitalize his energy and passion. Even so, he never expects to meet Hilal. A gifted young violinist, she is the woman Paulo loved five hundrded years before---and the woman he betrayed in an act of cowardice so far reaching that it prevents him from finding real happiness in this life. Together they will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, traveling a path that teaches love, forgiveness, and the courage to overcome life's inevitable challenges. A fine copy bound in black and gray cloth with dust jacket and the original publisher's slipcase. Item #14227
