Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Already a bestseller worldwide, Coelho's latest inspirational novel revolves around themes of sexuality.

About the Author

Paulo Coelho was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the city where he now lives. His own life has in many ways been as varied and unusual as the protagonists of his internationally acclaimed novels. Like them, Paulo Coelho has followed a dream in a quest for fulfillment. His own dream, to be a writer, met with frustration throughout much of his early adult life, a time in which he worked at various professions, some of them materially rewarding but spiritually unfulfilling. "I always knew," he says, "that my Personal Legend, to use a term from alchemy, was to write." He was 38 when he published his first book.

In 1970, after deciding that law school was not for him, he traveled through much of South America, North Africa, Mexico, and Europe. Returning to Brazil after two years, he began a successful career as popular songwriter. In 1974, he was imprisoned for a short time by the military dictatorship then ruling in Brazil. In 1980, he experienced one of the defining moments of his life: he walked the 500-plus mile Road of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain. On this ancient highway, used for centuries by pilgrims from France to get to the cathedral said to house the remains of St. James, he achieved a self-awareness and a spiritual awakening that he later described in The Pilgrimage.

Paulo Coelho once said that following your dream is like learning a foreign language; you will make mistakes but you will get there in the end. In 1988, he published The Alchemist, a novel that explores this theme, and it launched him as an international bestselling author. Specifically, Paulo Coelho is recognized for his powerful storytelling technique and the profound spiritual insights he blends seamlessly into his parables. Since then, The Alchemisthas sold more than 11 million copies worldwide and has been translated into some 41 languages. In addition to The Pilgrimageand The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho has written luminous novels about the different streams of our lives, including By The River Piedra I Sat Down &Wept, The Valkyries, The Fifth Mountain, and Veronika Decides to Die.A winner of numerous literary prizes, Paulo Coelho is also a prominent speaker for humanitarian causes. In 1999, he received a Crystal Award for Artistic Achievement at the Davos Economic Forum Conference.


Paulo Coelho nació en Brasil y es uno de los autores más leídos internacionalmente. El Alquimista, su libro más famoso, ha vendido mas de 35 millones de copias en todo el mundo y ha sido traducido a cincuenta y cuatro idiomas. Ha recibido destacados premios y menciones internacionales como el Planetary Arts Award, el Crystal Award concedido por el foro Económico Mundial y la prestigiosa distinción Chevalier de l'Ordre de la Legión d'Honneur del gobierno francés. Coelho escribe una columna semanal sindicada en el mundo entero. Actualmente, vive en Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.
