From a review by Publishers Weekly (starred review) : "This vibrant, anecdote-packed biography. Provides an intimate portrait of a secretive man. " Luis Bunuel was dangerous, enigmatic, elusive, and never dispassionate. He had brilliant friends and made famous enemies. He helped Picasso hang the Guernica. He clashed with Greta Garbo and attended orgies staged by Charlie Chaplin. Bunuel, too, was a man of exceptional genius as well as unexpected charm, and he stands among the greatest creative artists of the 20th century. Disguising his sensitivity in cynicism and a calculated use of th... View more info

From the Author's Note: This book is. Not a critical study of either Katharine Hepburn's life or her career. It is, rather, as true an account of her life as I can present, based on countless hours of private conversations during which she reminisced. Even more than recalling events, Miss Hepburn often used our time together to reflect, an exercise in which I don't think she indulged with anybody else. And so, more than my remembrances, this book intends to convey hers. " 370 pages, some photos. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. View more info
