(Dalí) succeeds in doing exactly what he sets out to do ... communicates the snobbishness, self-adoration, comedy, seriousness, fanaticism, in short the concept of life and the total picture of himself he sets out to portray." Superbly illustrated with over eighty photographs of Dalí and his works, and scores of Dalí drawings and sketches

Hidden faces by Salvador Dalí( Book )

18 editions published between 1944 and 1993 in 4 languages and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Salvador Dalí's only novel, the reader enters the bizarre world already familiar to us from his paintings. Dalí describes, in vividly visual terms, the intrigues and love affairs of a group of dazzling, eccentric aristocrats who, with their luxurious and extravagant lifestyle, symbolize the decadence of the 1930s. The story of the tangled lives of the protagonists, from the February riots of 1934 in Paris to the closing days of World War II, constitutes a brilliant and dramatic vehicle for Dalí’s vision and reads as an epitaph of pre-war Europe

One of the world's greatest writers--in love with a great city. In a fascinating travel book, Stendhal carries the reader along with him on a grand tour of Rome.

No one but the author of The Red and the Black and The Charterhouse of Parma could capture the city's spell so magically: the Colosseum, the Pantheon, St. Peter's, the Forum, fountains, ruins, art treasures, the Italian people--all the pageantry that was once Rome lives again, and for all time! Stendhal: the most original and diverting of all guides to the Eternal City!
