About the Book
Paulo Coelho’s Hippie takes us back in time to a generation that longed for peace and dared to challenge the established social order. Speaking out against authoritarian politics, conservative modes of behaviour, excessive consumerism, and an unbalanced concentration of wealth and power, this book tackles many different things.
About the AuthorBorn on 24 August 1947, Brazilian lyricist and novelist Paulo Coelho is best known for his novel The Alchemist. Even at a young age, Paulo always knew that he was meant to become a writer. In fact, when a young Paulo told his mother about his wish to become a writer and expressed his unwillingness to follow a traditional path, his parents committed him to a mental institution. But, that didn’t stop Paulo Coelho, and he went on to write best-selling novels, such as The Winner Stands Alone, The Devil and Miss Prym, and The Witch of Portobello, among others.
