作品简介

《牧羊少年奇幻之旅》作者、“巴西文学炼金术士”保罗·柯艾略的一部小众之作,尚无中文简体版,但很多读过英文版的人都说这是他们最喜欢、也认为最深刻的一部柯艾略作品。

书名“十一分钟”指的是人类交欢的平均时间。故事一位从性工作者视角出发,探讨爱与性以及二者最好的结合方式。主人公玛利亚出生在巴西的一个小镇,因为痛苦的初恋,她深信爱是不好的,人最自由的状态是独立生活,对他人无所求。想赚钱的她来到日内瓦成为了性工作者,见过了形形色色的客人,而一个让她心动的画家的出现,挑战了她以往的情爱观。她开始真正思考爱与性的话题,也开启了一段难忘的自我探寻。

本书是“特别加长版”,附赠16页的作者采访和深度评论。

Eleven Minutes 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. This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.
