Paulo Coelho is launching his new book, The Witch of Portobello, through his blog [www.paulocoelhoblog.com
I found it out because i'm inscibed to his newsletter.
Who is Athena? The orphan abandoned by her gypsy mother in Transylvania. The child taken to Beirut by her adoptive parents. The clerk working in a large bank in London. The successful real estate agent in Dubai. The priestess of Portobello Road. Athena is the main character in The Witch of Portobello. Her story is told by the people who knew her, amongst them, her adoptive mother, a journalist researching vampirism, a priest, a teacher of calligraphy, and an actress. They each draw a different facet of her character, describing what they saw and experienced as well as their own impressions, beliefs and anxieties.
