As far back as 1922 the great poet Garcia Lorca had predicted that I was destined for a literary career and had suggested that my future lie precisely in the "pure novel." In Salvador Dalí's only novel, the reader enters the bizarre world already familiar to us from his paintings. Dalí describes, in vividly visual terms, the intrigues and love affairs of a group of dazzling, eccentric aristocrats who, with their luxurious and extravagant lifestyle, symbolize the decadence of the 1930s. The story of the tangled lives of the protagonists, from the February riots of 1934 in Paris to the closing days of World War II, constitutes a brilliant and dramatic vehicle for Dalí’s vision and reads as an epitaph of pre-war Europe.
