About the Author:

Paulo Coelho was born in Brazil and has become one of the most widely read and loved authors in the world. Especially renowned for The Alchemist and Eleven Minutes, he has sold more than 85 million books worldwide and has been translated into 63 languages. The recipient of numerous prestigious international awards, amongst them the Crystal Award by the World Economic Forum and France's Legion d'Honneur, Paulo Coelho was inducted into the Brazilian Academy of Letters in 2002. He writes a weekly column syndicated throughout the world.

From AudioFile:

A mysterious stranger in the company of the devil comes to the mountain village of Viscos with 11 bars of gold and a Faustian bargain for the entire town. He confides to Chantal Prym, the local bartender, the particulars about his murderous offer, intended in his eyes to crystallize the struggle between good and evil. Coelho's parable (first published in Europe in 1992) poses a morality test for Viscos in a way that recalls works like Mark Twain's "The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg" and Chaucer's "The Pardoner's Tale." Linda Emond's effective reading is lightly characterized. This self-effacing, low-key performance accords with the fable-like quality of the novel and makes Coelho's morality tale personal and absorbing.
