Paulo Coelho

Autobiography 1958

Paulo’s 1958 autobiography (age 11).

“I was born on August 24, 1947 at the health home Sao José. Since I was little, I live in this village. I have already attended 3 colleges, and in all three I was considered as a prince such as the way I dressed.

In all the schools I went to I always had good grades. I love to study but I also like to play. I’ve traveled a lot, going to Pará, where my grandparents live, Petrópolis, Araruama and Terezópolis.” (…)

His father was from Pará and his mother was from Rio de Janeiro.

He loved reading, receiving gifts, fishing, sports, Brazilian popular music and cinema…

Hated rock and roll and picnics…

His dream was to receive a hunting rifle as a gift.
