Una novela cautivadora y audaz del autor de El Alquimista, bestseller con m&aaucute;s 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.

About the Author:

The Brazilian author Paulo Coelho was born in 1947 in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Before dedicating his life completely to literature, he worked as theater director, actor, lyricist, and journalist. Coelho wrote song lyrics for many famous performers in Brazilian music, such as Elis Regina and Rita Lee, yet he is best known for his work with Raul Seixas. Together they wrote such successes as "Eu nasci há dez mil anos atrás" ("I Was Born Ten Thousand Years Ago"), "Gita," and "Al Capone."

His fascination with the spiritual quest dates back to his hippie days, when he travelled the world learning about secret societies, oriental religions, etc. In 1982, Coelho published his first book, Hell Archives, which failed to make any kind of impact. In 1985, he contributed to the Practical Manual of Vampirism, although he later tried to take it off the shelves, since he considered it "of bad quality." In 1986, Paulo Coelho did the pilgrimage to Saint James of Compostella, an experience later to be documented in his book The Pilgrimage.
