That’s just two weeks before the opening of an animated film adaptation – featuring the voices of Liam Neeson and Selma Hayek.
“The Prophet” has sold more than 9 million copies in the U.S. alone – since it was first published in 1923.
The book offers reflections on everything from marriage to clothing.
