The Winner Stands Alone
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?
