Is there someone out there who will accept us for who we are? That’s what renowned artist Salvador Dalí was wondering before he met Gala, the love of his life. But just who was this person she accepted? Birmant and Oubrerie attempt to answer this question in the first volume of their Dalí biography, following the misadventures in Figueras, Madrid, and Paris of the feckless young man—dreamer, klutz, art school dropout, bourgeois son, a preternaturally gifted draftsman and an orthopterophobe, painfully timid yet privately arrogant—who would go on to become one of the 20th century’s best-known painters.
