THE WINNER STANDS ALONE
by Pablo Coehlo
Harper Perennial


In THE ALCHEMIST, what many consider Pablo Coehlo’s most famous work, a boy goes off in search of his dream. In THE WINNER STANDS ALONE, the protagonist has found his dream and will do anything…anything… to keep her.

THE WINNER STANDS ALONE is the story of Igor, a successful, driven Russian entrepreneur who has everything but the perfect woman. Well, he did have her and now she’s gone. Igor will do anything to win back his ex-wife, Ewa, and no one, not even Ewa, will stand in his way.

Set amid the frenzy of the Cannes Film Festival, the characters will mingle with the super rich, super famous, the has-beens and the wanna-bes. Glamour, fame and fortune are theirs for the taking, but behind this beautiful fairytale world is another -- a degenerate world of excess and depravity, where hunger and obsession can destroy so easily.
