Set in Paris and in the enchanting landscape of central Asia, this new novel by the author of the international bestsellers The Alchemist and Eleven Minutes follows the journey of a man obsessed with finding the wife who left him without an explanation.

The narrator of The Zahir is a bestselling novelist who lives in Paris and enjoys all the privileges that money and celebrity bring. His wife of ten years, Esther, is a war correspondent who, despite her professional success and freedom from the conventional constraints of marriage, is facing an existential crisis. When she disappears along with a friend, Mikhail, who may or may not be her lover, the authorities question the narrator. Was Esther kidnapped, killed, or did she simply abandon a marriage that left her unfulfilled? The narrator doesn't have any answers but he has plenty of questions of his own.

Then one day Mikhail, the man with whom Esther was last seen, finds the narrator and promises to take him to his wife. In his attempt to recapture a love lost, the narrator discovers something unexpected about himself.

A haunting and redemptive story about the dark side of obsession, The Zahir explores its potential to both fulfill our dreams and to destroy them. It is also a thoughtful meditation on faith, celebrity, marriage -- and their relationships to freedom and creativity.

CURIOSO TÍTULO
Un zahir es algo que no puedes olvidar ni por un instante, algo que empieza siendo algo aparentemente irrelevante pero que termina por llenarte la vida todo el tiempo porque no podes dejar de pensar en eso y todo lo demas desaparece.

Leí este libro por haber sido escrito por Paulo Coelho; de no ser así, "El Zahir" sería otro de tantos títulos que no son best-sellers y que se quedaron en el anonimato. Me parece que es de lectura totalmente obligatoria para todos los lectores de Co ...Continua
