"Like the Flowing River" is a compilation of tales, opinions, short stories and ideas drawn from articles published by Brazilian writer Paulo in various international newspapers. Seven years of reflections, journeys and meetings: the revelation of a fascinating philosophy of life. A brilliant collection cleverly written with passion and humor.
Coelho’s simple words and subtle philosophy encompass reflections on solitude, the art of love or the way to become an archer, to parables on man’s struggles and journey through life. His mission is to observe human beings; what they are and how they are, rather than what they want to be or pretend to be. Coelho’s writing is timeless: thoughts on books and libraries and belonging to a technological age sit alongside an awareness of the value of an ordinary pencil. Appealing to a wide audience, this is inspirational non-fiction from the one of the world’s greatest writers.
