The fascinating and frank autobiography of the celebrated surrealist film
director.

MY LAST SIGH
Luis Buñuel
Translated by Abigail Israel
University of Minnesota Press | 256 pages | 2003
ISBN 0-8166-4387-3 | paperback | $16.95

Luis Buñuel lived many lives‹surrealist, Spanish Civil War propagandist,
hedonist, friend of artists and poets, and filmmaker. With candor and wit,
Buñuel offers his opinions on the literati and avant-garde members of his
social circle, including Pablo Picasso, Jorge Luis Borges, Salvador Dalí,
and Federico García Lorca. These colorful stories of his life reveal a man
of stunning imagination and influence.

³May be quite simply the loveliest testament ever left by a film
director.²‹New York Times Book Review

³One of the best books ever offered by a moviemaker. Buñuel is the proper
human landmark for a moment when Europe met America and the schemes of
religion, property, and progress were reassessed as dreams.²‹The New
Republic
