"Buñuel is a filmmaker I have been stylistically haunted and influenced by for a very long time. After reading this collection of essays, some of which have never been published before, I am even more enthralled by this man. He remains my favorite voice of the surrealists."Gus Van Sant
"This lively and diverse selection of Buñuel's literary work should provide the American reader with a much greater understandiing of the man and his work, and with hours of enjoyment as well."Julie Jones, University of New Orleans
"Buñuel didn't like to put words on paper, but thankfully he did, revealing the sly, shy, quirky, passionate, unpredictable genius whose superbly subversive films were everything but shy. This trove of reluctant writings is a rare and historical treat."Charles Champlin, retired arts editor, Los Angeles Times
A lovely, startling grab bag of jokes, insights, recollected dreams, superbly grave mini-essays, and general bits and pieces retrieved from Bunuel's life.
