Summary
Aleph marks a return to the author's beginnings. In a frank and surprising personal story, one of the world's most beloved authors embarks on a remarkable and transformative journey of self discovery. Facing a grave crisis of faith, and seeking a path of spiritual renewal and growth, he decides to start over: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the world. On this journey through Europe, Africa, and Asia, he will again meet Hilal, the woman he loved 500 years before, an encounter that will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, through past and present, in search of himself. Aleph is an encounter with our fears and our sins; a search for love and forgiveness, and the courage to confront the inevitable challenges of life

Summary
'The search for peace has its price, and I ask myself: just how far am I prepared to go?' In 2006, Paulo embarked on a Trans-Siberian pilgrimage across the terrain of his readership as he sought to reconnect with his waning spirituality. Joined by Hilal, a determined and enigmatic young girl with a compelling history, and a reluctant entourage of publishers, translators and assistants, Paulo experiences an unexpected divine awakening, the Aleph, with Hilal. The girl who seemed to be merely another over-enthusiastic Paulo devotee is the catalyst that banishes his ennui and a girl with whom he has shared a previous life and from whom he must seek forgiveness. Paulo must banish pride to order to gain emancipation from the shackles of his own isolation, apathy and guilt, allowing happiness and desire to burst back into his life.
