"Toute jeune Brésilienne du Nordeste, Maria n'aspire qu'à l'Aventure, au grand Amour. Au cours d'une semaine de vacances à Rio de Janeiro, sur la plage de Copacabana, un Suisse lui propose de devenir danseuse de cabaret à Genève. Elle voit là le début d'un conte de fées... Mais la réalité sera bien différente. Maria en vient à se prostituer - sans honte, puisqu'elle apprend à son âme à ne pas se plaindre de ce que fait son corps, et qu'elle s'interdit de tomber amoureuse. Après tout, la prostitution est un métier comme un autre, avec ses règles, ses horaires et ses jours de repos. Mais le sexe - comme l'amour - reste pour elle une énigme. Pour découvrir le sens sacré de la sexualité, Maria devra trouver le chemin de la réconciliation avec elle-même."--Présentation de l'éditeur.

Über den Autor (2005)

Paulo Coelho was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on August 24, 1947. As a teenager, he wanted to become a writer, but his parents wanted him to pursue a more substantial and secure career. At the age of 17, his introversion and opposition to his parents led them to commit him to a mental institution. He escaped three times before being released at the age of 20. Once released, he abandoned his ideas of becoming a writer and enrolled in law school to please his parents. He stayed in law school for one year. In 1986, Coelho walked the 500-plus mile Road of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain, a turning point in his life. On the path, he had a spiritual awakening, which he described in his book The Pilgrimage. Before becoming a full-time author, he worked as theatre director and actor, lyricist, and journalist. He wrote song lyrics for many famous performers in Brazilian music including Elis Regina, Rita Lee, and Raul Seixas. His first book, Hell Archives, was published in 1982. He has written over 25 books since then including The Alchemist, Brida, The Fifth Mountain, The Devil and Miss Prym, Eleven Minutes, The Zahir, The Witch of Portobello, Like a Flowing River, and Adultery. He received numerous awards including Las Pergolas Prize, The Budapest Prize, Nielsen Gold Book Award, and the Grand Prix Litteraire Elle. In 1996, he founded the Paulo Coelho Institute, which provides aid to children and elderly people with financial problems. In 2007, Coelho was named a Messenger of Peace to the United Nations.
