The Alchemist

I have just started reading this much recommended book by Paulo Coelho. It was given to me by a friend but I was also interested in the comments made on Coelho by Ken Robinson in his book about Epiphanies. Coelho's parents did not want him to become a writer and they had him admitted to a mental hospital where he underwent 3 courses of ECT. Now thats what I call suffering for your art. Luckily the experience did not put him off and he went on to become a major writer. Well must go and start reading. Ciao Grant
