We also learn how Dali draws inspiration from excrement, rotten fish and Vermeer's Lacemaker to enter his 'rhinocerontic' period, preaching his post-holocaustal gospels of nuclear mysticism and cosmogenic atavism; and we follow the labyrinthine mental journeys that lead to the creation of such paintings as the Assumption, and his film script The Flesh Wheelbarrow -- Back cover
