Was he a madman, a genius or a lover? Was he impotent, paranoid or simply shy?

What emerges is the heartfelt and inimitable account of two artistic worlds, each possessed of its own rare intensity, meeting for the first time. Backed by rigorous research, Dalí also includes a detailed timeline and bibliography.
