Today’s Question by the reader : Stella

Author: Paulo Coelho

Some medias reported the disturbance caused by your biography The Magician. Was this biography published with your authorization? How about its authenticity?

I authorized the biography but Fernando was completely free to use whatever material he wanted.

I never wanted a complacent biography – I gave him the keys to a truck I had with all my writings and only read the book once it was being printed.

I was impressed by certain of the things I did, but I prefer truth in these matters.
