Surreal paintings from the inimitable Salvador Dalí, brought to life through spectacular pop–up pages

Produced in association with the Dalí estate this book brings some of the most celebrated paintings of Salvador Dalí to spectacular three-dimensional life, providing new layers of appreciation of the surreal genius of the artist.

Decades after his death, Dalí’s trademark moustache and dandy outfits remain instantly recognizable, while his art has inspired and continues to inspire new generations of artists, from Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst. Enigmatic, playful, deceptive, outrageous, and—above all—adventurous, Salvador Dalí will be remembered as one of the most important artists of the twentieth century.

So much to love about this twisty, complex spy novel about two American sisters caught up in intrigue, love and war during the end of WWII and the beginning of the Cold War. Williams' strong grasp of character among Foreign Service employees, brings palpable ethos & possible understanding to drinking excesses among those deemed with knowing and carrying out sometimes intractable diplomatic missions, all-the-while having family members having to pick up the pieces of broken hopes and dreams. A page-turning wonder, this is historical spy fiction at its best. - Reviewed by Maureen
