About the Book

Una novela cautivadora y audaz del autor de El alquimista, bestseller con mas de un millón de ejemplares vendidos.

En este nuevo relato, el novelista explora con gran sensibilidad la naturaleza sagrada del sexo y del amor y nos invita a enfrentar nuestros propios prejuicios y demonios. Once minutos relata la historia de María, una joven proveniente de una villa brasileña, cuyos primeros roces inocentes con el amor le dejan con el corazón destrozado. A su tierna edad, se convence de que jamás hallará el amor verdadero; al contrario, considera que ""El amor es algo horrible que produce sufrimiento.""

Un encuentro casual en Río la lleva a Ginebra, donde sueña con conseguir fama y fortuna. Sin embargo, termina trabajando de prostituta. En Ginebra, la opinión desesperanzada que María tiene del amor, se pone a prueba al conocer a un apuesto joven pintor. En esta odisea de descubrimiento personal, María debe elegir entre recorrer el camino de la oscuridad, el del sexo por el sexo mismo, o arriesgarlo todo para descubrir su propia ""luz interior"" y las posibilidad del sexo sagrado, es decir, del sexo dentro del contexto del amor.

Once minutos is 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. 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 has to 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 sacred sex, sex in the context of love.
