The story of the tangled lives of theMoreDalis only novel. In richly visual language Dali describes the lives and loves of a group of aristocratic characters who, in their beauty, luxury, and extravagance, symbolize the decadent Europe 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 the war, is a brilliant vehicle for Dalis ideas, and an evocation of pre-war Europe. Valuable not only for Dalis own specially drawn illustrations, but also because it synthesizes all of the themes in Dalis art. So full of visual invention, so witty, so charged with an almost Dickensian energy that its difficult not to accept its authors own arrogant valuation of himself as a genius. - The Observer.
