From the cover: “« EVERY MORNING upon awakening, I experience a supreme pleasure: that of being Salvador Dali, and I ask I myself, wonderstruck, what prodigious thing will he do today, this Salvador Dali » writes the artist. This splendid book leads us through the fabulous world of dreams, hallucinations, phantasms and fractured reality that Dali has created. Illustrations and words are combined in a masterly fashion to show the private world of a genius, a world that, in its myriad details, speaks to all of us.
