About Veronika Decides to Die, by Paulo Coelho
In July 1999, for my birthday, Paulo sent me his book, Veronika, which at that point was still unpublished. I was thrilled to be among the first in the world to read a brand new book by the Alchemist himself, sent to me personally! Paulo never ceases to amaze me with his generosity, good heart and remarkable storytelling abilities.
I was very moved by Veronika. In his unique and tantalizing way, Paulo introduces us to yet another unforgettable character who reminds us of just how precious and wonderful life really is.
Enjoy the book!
