About the Book

“El libro lanza un curioso y dulce hechizo”. -Entertainment Weekly

Once minutos cuenta la historia de María, una chica joven de un pueblo de Brazil, cuyo primer inocente encuentro con el amor la deja con el corazón roto. A temprana edad se convence de que nunca encontrará el amor verdadero y, en cambio, cree que “el amor es una cosa terrible que la hará sufrir”. Un encuentro fortuito en Río la lleva a Ginebra, donde sueña con encontrar fama y fortuna, pero termina trabajando como prostituta.

En Ginebra, la desesperanzada perspectiva que tiene sobre el amor se pone a prueba cuando conoce a un pintor joven y guapo. En esta odisea de autodescubrimiento, María debe elegir entre seguir el camino de la oscuridad -el placer sexual por mero gusto- o arriesgar todo para encontrar su propia luz interior y la posibilidad del amor verdadero. 


“The book casts a curiously sweet spell.” – Entertainment Weekly

Eleven Minutes tells the story of Maria, a young girl from a Brazilian village whose first innocent brushes with love leave her heartbroken. At a tender age, she becomes convinced that she will never find true love, instead believing that “love is a terrible thing that will make you suffer.” A chance meeting in Rio takes her to Geneva, where she dreams of finding fame and fortune, yet ends up working as a prostitute.

In Geneva, Maria’s despairing view of love is put to the test when she meets a handsome young painter. In this odyssey of self-discovery, Maria must choose between pursuing a path of darkness—sexual pleasure for its own sake—or risking everything to find her own inner light and the possibility of true love.
