9780823004164: World Behind the Door: An Encounter with Salvador Dali (Art Encounters)

Mike Resnick is a science fiction god—more awards than any other writer in his field!
Salvador Dali's The Persistence of Memory is one of the most memorable images in the world. Everyone who sees this painting wonders: What does it mean? Now the surrealist masterpiece is at the center of a compelling science-fiction story from world-renowned author Mike Resnick. Resnick's first entry in the Art Encounters series, Lady with an Alien: An Encounter with Leonardo da Vinci, was named a Best Book of the Year by the Columbus Dispatch and was called "a most successful encounter!" by Kliatt. Now his remarkable new tale reveals the connection between Dali's celebrated painting and quantum physics...because, it turns out, Dali often traveled to an alternate universe, where he got a lot of his ideas from a young girl named Jinx. Meet Jinx in World Behind the Door, along with Sigmund Freud, Werner Heisenberg, and other historical characters, and discover the shadowy, strange world where all the clocks look like they’re melting.
· Entertaining story of alternate universes
· Packed with intriguing ideas and characters
· Great for school or summer reading
