Art dealer Stan Lauryssens made millions in modern art, but he sold only one name: Salvador Dali. The surrealist painter's work was a hot commodity for investors and businessmen hoping to launder their black-market cash. Stan didn't mind looking the other way; he just hoped the buyers looked the other way as well. The art he sold came from some very shady sources, but he soon discovered that the shadiest source of all was Dali himself. The more successful Stan became, the closer he got to Dali's inner circle, until he found himself living next door to the artist. While hiding from Interpol's detectives, he learned more about Dali's secret history, the studio of artists that produced his work and the money-making machine that kept his extravagant lifestyle afloat long after his creativity began to wane. Subject of a forthcoming feature film staring Al Pacino, "Dali and I" offers an eye-opening behind-the-scenes view of the commerce and conspiracy that can go hand in hand in the art world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Sensational stuff, fantastic in every sense" Daily Telegraph "A riveting, superbly written book" Glasgow Herald "Aside from the allegations of artistic impropriety, Dali and I is packed with enough stories of sexual experimentation and pervesion that it may even have managed to make The Great Masturbator (a Dali classic) blush" The Big Issue "Lauryssens provides us with an intimate portrait of Dali" -- Noah Charney, author of The Art Thief "Utterly true to the spirit of Dali and a certain bestseller" Kirkus Reviews
