This review is from: Sex, Surrealism, Dali and Me: The Memoirs of Carlos Lozano (Hardcover)
What a book. Fantasically written account of Carlos Lozano's time spent in the prescence of the Court of Dali. The setting is flowery & anything can & will happen. It's a time when people wanted & were still able to shock by behaviour & dress. A time that no longer exists. If you want a peek into a bygone world of excess, privilege & beauty, this is a book for you. Some of the excesses are verging on medieval. Dali performed, often brilliantly, occasionally banally in his quest to shock while Carlos stood silently by, ever the good friend, absorbing all around him & never losing his sense of wondrement. Thankfully, his memory of recall served him well. Carlos comes across as a very likeable person to open up this world that only the young, beautiful & very wealthy were allowed to see. His aim was to please & be liked & he certainly achieves that with this marvellous memoir. Thank you Mr. Thurlow.
