New York Times Bestseller
A Story of Love and Obsession
In The Winner Stands Alone, Paulo Coelho takes us to the Cannes Film Festival, where the so-called superclass—those who have made it in the dreammaker’s world of fashion and cinema—gathers. At stake are money, power, and fame—things that most people are prepared to do anything to keep.
At this modern vanity fair we meet Igor, a Russian millionaire; Middle Eastern fashion czar Hamid; American actress Gabriela, eager to land a lead role; ambitious criminal detective Savoy, hoping to resolve the case of his life; and Jasmine, a woman on the brink of a successful modeling career.
Who will succeed in identifying his or her own personal dream among the many prefabricated ones—and succeed in making it come true?
