NEW YORK - It only took 92 years for the U.S. pub­lisher of Kahil Gi­bran’s in­spi­ra­tional clas­sic “The Prophet” to re­lease the book in pa­per­back. The Pen­guin Ran­dom House im­print Vintage Books told The As­so­ci­ated Press on Wed­nes­day that the new edi­tion would be avail­able July 21, two weeks be­fore the open­ing of an an­i­mated film adap­ta­tion that fea­tures 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. It of­fers re­flec­tions on ev­ery­thing from mar­riage to cloth­ing.
