Today’s Question by Aart Hilal

Author: Paulo Coelho

You mention that none of your characters in 11 Minutes know what sex is about. But the writer is like God in that he always knows what goes on between the lines and outside the brackets. So what is sex about?

The writer is not God, but a human being in search of his own identity. And sex was the way that God choose to manifest the mystery of creation. In eleven minutes you can be the instrument of creating a new soul.
