    The Secret Life of Salvador Dali (Paperback)

    Book Description:

    This early autobiography, which takes Dalí through his late thirties, is as startling and unpredictable as his art. On its first publication, the reviewer of Books observed: "It is impossible not to admire this painter as writer . . . (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 80 photographs of Dalí and his works, and scores of Dalí drawings and sketches.

    Maniac Eyeball : The Unspeakable Confessions of Salvador Dali (Creation Art Directives) (Paperback)

    Book Description

    Maniac Eyeball is the third, final and most comprehensive volume of autobiography written by the late Salvador Dali. Maniac Eyeball contains the frank and uncensored confessions of Salvador Dali, from his childhood and first adolescent sexual experiences to his emergence as a painter, surrealist and eventually the most famous-and possibly richest-artist of modern times. These inspired tracts, covering art, love, ***, money, death, fame, science, his famous friends and enemies, and his extraordinary creative genius, reveal the intricate workings of Dali's mind to create not only an unparalleled autobiography, but also one of the key surrealist texts yet published.

    Salvador Dali (1904–1989) entered the ranks of the Surrealists in 1929 with a series of iconoclastic paintings which fused technical virtuosity with Freudian infantilism, leading to his invention of the "paranoiac-critical" method. Later expelled from the surrealist group, he was christened "Avida Dollars" by Andre Breton while acquiring the reputation of master showman and scandalist. His art and writings remain among the most unique and important bodies of work of the 20th century.

    "Dali's paintings reveal in the most powerful form the basic elements of the Surrealist imagination: a series of equations for dealing with the extraordinary transformations of our age. Let us salute this unique genius, who has counted for the first time the multiplication tables of obsession, psychopathology and possibility"-J.G. Ballard

    Oui: The Paranoid-Critical Revolution: Writings, 1927-1933 (Paperback)

    From Publishers Weekly
    "If I press your fingers, I crush the droplets of my picnic grapes; and if I want to remind myself of your legs, I need only recall that disturbing rotting donkey with the nightingale head." Outlandish, funny, disturbing and out-of-control, the Catalan surrealist Salvador Dal! didn't confine himself to the vivid, weird paintings for which he is known. Dal! also wroteApoems, essays, short fiction, art criticism and art theory, "Reverie," "Documentary" and descriptive prose-poetry, all meant to "stray unmethodically onto the paths of the involuntary." Some of it describes others' works of artADal! reviews and recommends, for example, the drawings of Federico Garc!a Lorca and the poetry of Benjamin P?ret. Dal!'s expertly wacky, sometimes icky, prose shares many of its attractions with his canvases: will his fans be surprised to learn that he hadAor claimed he hadA"at three or four years of age, a vision of a decomposed lizard, gnawed by ants"? Dal!'s exuberantly off-the-cuff theories, notes, self-mockeries and reactions are good antidotes for the overseriousness of so much other writing about modern art. Art historians who follow surrealism will be happy to see this first English translation of volume one of Dal!'s Oui (published in French in 1971), but hopefully they won't be the only ones, since the prose can be so much fun to read. Dal! suggests that "new Surrealist objects" "be photographed... by dropping the object from ten meters... onto a little heap of hay"; his strenuous assertions and non sequiturs retain, 70 years later, the exhilarating strangeness of such a fall.

    Book Description
    Cultural Writing. Art Criticism. "Pleasure is man's most legitimate aspiration." ('The Moral Position of Surrealism"). This book is a translation of the first volume of Oui- a collection of texts compiled and edited by Salvador Dali's great chronicler, colleague and friend, Robert Descharnes. Arranged chronologically, these diverse (polymorphously perverse) texts cover the period of Dali's creative life, from his student days to his early associations with the Surrealist movement. They offer a microcosmic view of the "cosmic" life and art, creation and creative process, mind and body of Salvador Dali. "Why do rotting donkeys have the head of a hollowed-out night nightingale? How is it there are are rotting nightingales with the head of a donkey?" ("No. 1 Times Six).

    The Shameful Life of Salvador Dali (Hardcover)


    Editorial Reviews


    "The world will admire me. Perhaps I'll be despised and misunderstood, but I'll be a great genius, I'm certain of it."
    Dali ~



    At 16, Crocodile (a.k.a. "Salvador") Dali had already developed the remarkable ego and uncanny perception that would distinguish him as one of the most murderous and Evil artists of the 20th century. A self-proclaimed surrealist, sexually obsessed exhibitionist, and greediest commercialist with Hitler-Communist political affiliations, Dali was anything but benign. Biographer Ian Gibson argues that the modern master was motivated primarily by the very last thing anyone would suspect him of: a very deep sense of shame. Via the artist's correspondence, diary, and autobiography (The Secret Life of Salvador Dali), Gibson meticulously stitches together the wild characters and deep-dish details of Dali's life: a guilt-ridden childhood, masochistic feelings of sexual inadequacy ("...I discovered that my P-E-N-I-S was small, pitiful and soft"), his homosexual love affairs with Lorca and S-E-X-pot Gala and the real passion of his life, surrealism. Critical, fair, balanced and lively, The Shameful Life of Salvador Dali digs deep beyond the escapades and outlandish façade to expose the very personal, hidden and vulnerable side of one of the world's most terrible performers.

    From Publishers Weekly
    Salvador Dali's swan-dive from Surrealist visionary to pathetic self-parody surely constitutes one of this century's great case studies in career suicide. From roughly 1928 to the Spanish Civil War, Dali fused his myriad sexual compulsions and anxieties with a pathological desire to epater le bourgeois, creating a group of first-rate paintings (think limp watches) that withstood all the disasters to follow. Shame was central throughout Dali's career, according to Gibson. His white-hot creative steak of the late 1920s and early 1930s started when his father expelled him from the family for a painting consisting of the phrase "Sometimes I Spit for Pleasure on the Portrait of My Mother" scrawled over an outline of Jesus Christ. Dali's second and more lasting brush with shame, however, was less productive. He was excommunicated from the Surrealist movement by its "pope," Andre Breton (who anagrammatically dubbed him "Avida Dollars"), for excessive greed and ambivalence toward fascism. After this, Dali sunk as far and as fast as possible, marrying the charismatic but openly promiscuous Gala; treating art as nothing but a cash cow; and engaging in increasingly lame publicity stunts, sycophantic visits to dictators and popes and even a little cruelty to animals. Gibson has made the most of this promising but treacherous material: "Two thirds of this book are devoted to one third of Dali's life," that is, the more productive and less shameful part. Meticulously researched and compulsively readable, Gibson's narrative benefits from sturdy readings of the paintings and an in-depth knowledge of the artist's milieu, partially gained from his work on Lorca (Federico Garcia Lorca: A Life). And while the book's last third may make the reader wince and squirm, this response only demonstrates how effectively the biographer has evoked Dali's shameful decline. There are more than 30 full-color reproductions and illustrations.

              SunDevilUSA1,

              How do you know I didn't go to the gym and what does that have to do with this anyway? Just for the record, my divorce decree lists me as the petitioner and the only people I blame for the failure of my marriage is my ex-husband and myself.

              My screen name has nothing to do with my IQ.

                ______________________________



                Reviewer: wiredweird "wiredweird" (USA) -

                Supposedly, some small corner of the mind tosses its dice continuously, trying every combination of fact against every other. Next some filter removes the nonsense - most of it - and lets through a few drops of insight. In some few minds, a droplet or two more forms steady trickle of meaningful creativity.

                In Dalí, the floodgates had opened. Every experience, even seeing a hotel bellboy, spilling some coffee, or flatulence, had mystic and mythic meaning for him. Read just a few of his words, and you know that you can't just read his words. Ideas swirled around him in chaotic orbits, like his beloved flies. His writing makes me think of a show of fireworks, which an author tries to describe by tracing a few dozen especially brilliant sparks.

                Three things stand out as invariant across Dalí's life, as he tells it. The second is Gala, his wife, muse, agent, and tour-guide to planet earth. The third is enthusiasm for everything, a degree of involvement with his world that permeates his vision and hearing, but also his senses of smell, touch, and all things of the body. That level of everyday intensity would stun most people in just minutes, and probably kill some.

                The first point in Dalí's world is, of course, Dalí. I can not describe Dalí on Dalí, you must experience that first-hand.



                Reviewer: Jason R. Bowers "Jason the Flea" (Denver, Co USA) -

                Hilarious and captivating!
                A rollercoaster ride that twists and turns through the mind of Dali offering cohesive dialogue and thoughts blended with undecipherable rants and hallucinations. This book gives the reader an intimate view of an artistic genius through the eyes and actions of Dali. He walks a thin line between genius and madman, mostly the latter. If it were not for his beloved wife Gala there would be no doubt in my mind that he ever would have become anything close to a genius. Gala gave Dali order, anchored him in the real world and created the force behind his paintings.

                Dali was definitely the master of creating hype. No matter what he was doing, there would be scandal, controversy and snobbery, as he refers to it. Dali created spectacle from his home in Port Lligat, Spain to his frequent travels to New York and Paris. He was loved by those he reviled and despised by those people he loved primarily Picasso and his own father. Obsessed with bowl movements, buttocks and rhinoceros horns Dali often relied on these images to create the meaning behind his works.

                By far one of the best speakers, Dali manipulated his audiences into accepting his approach and ideology on Surrealist art and artists. The media even listened and published numerous articles in newspapers and magazines on the happenings of his life's art. Often playing both sides of a situation, disagreement or battle, he always comes out on top still remaining allies with all parties involved.

                I would recommend taking the two or three nights it would take to read this book and jump into the mind of this Surrealist genius/madman, Dali. If you hold on to the end you will experience the revered irrational mindset of this artisan and forever hold a new understanding of Dali's revolutionary ideas and works.
