THE WINNER STANDS ALONE
It is an exciting story of meanness, greed and worshipping of celebrities. An unembellished picture of how far we have came.
Successful, internationally renown author of „The Alchemist“ starts in his another enthralling book an exciting journey towards our enduring enchantment – fame, happiness and important persons. It is a book about success as wicked temptation.
„The Winner Stands Alone“, which plot unfolds in the attractive milieu of Cannes´ Film Festival and fashion-world, peers into backrounds of luxury and glamour, being deep contemplation about the scale of the stability of our dreams and values we use to value ourselves.
The novel watches the steps of Russian businessman, the giant of telecommunications Igor, in foreign country during 24 hours. The devastated soul of that man is full of pain caused by broken feelings. In orded to win back an attention of his ex-wife he have invented a mad plan and fulfills it with devilish scrupulosity.
Igor encounters a young and ambitious actress Gabriela, a model Jasmine, who has Rwanda origins and lives in Europe as refugee, an influential and corrupted film-worker and stilist, Hamid, who have once in his very youth started from zero and is now in the peak of his fame.
Appearance of Igor changes their destinies in a fatal way.
It is an intense, sincere and well-written story about the world of fame, success and money, which is always haunting our lives, which brings with its ebbs and flows desperation, and condemnation of the most superficious, unstable and destruction-causing side of the world we live in.
