One thought on “Hidden Faces

  1. Kyriakos Sorokkou

    DNF DNF DNF I Did Not Finish this book I am since high school a great fan of Salvador Dal I have many books about him, about his art, a dossier with prints of his famous paintings, I visited an exhibition in London about him, full with his paintings and bizarre objects and sculptures, I did a project in Art at school, I saw his movie with Luis Bu uel Un chien Andalou, documentaries, interviews, videos So you get the gist I am a Dal fan.So in 2014 in a book market I saw his only novel Hidden Face [...]

    Death by prose too much prose, too many characters I couldn t care to remember, too many lines about that damn lost forest.If you have the patience to finish this I applaud you It s a very complex book, I m sure it gets to the point eventually, but sadly I have no time to find out Plenty other books are waiting for me

  3. Jim Ivy

    It was an epic task to complete this book and I must say that it truly damns everyone in it Dali writes as he paints pulling rich and saturated details from every situation, character and location So much so, that the first half of the book was like a marathon uphill bike ride, to be endued one page, one chapter And then, you get to the apex and the story takes over That s when it became apparent that the romanticized and drawn out descriptions were a false pretext, a deceptive tactic for coas [...]

    Imagine Hemingway was gay and always feeding you acid before he began reading to you on one of the hottest days of the summer.

  5. Tait

    Not the novel one imagines Dali could have written Is mainly about the dissolution of the bourgeoisie way of life through WWII and the unquenchability of people s obsessive desires Actually pretty tragic Dali s language is often dense and abstract, while at the same time being absorbingly visual Perhaps the most interesting is his technique of telescoping between objects and metaphors, so that the words in a description in one sentence become an emotional state in the next, a real fluidity of me [...]

    Esu pati nustebusi, kad pavyko perskaityti iki pabaigos Knyga apie tai, kaip karo fone manoma gyventi beprasmi kai Vietom atrodo, kad jau tuoj ka kas vyks veiksmo ar psichologiniame lygmenyje , bet ne beveik nieko Tokia ir veik j buvimo esm kad tik ne vykt tikras gyvenimas.

  7. Marta

    I read this book quite a while ago but it stayed with me so sensual and delving deep into people s desires yet so decadent and pointless I felt relating to it just like I relate to Dali s paintings with understanding and recognition yet shuddering at the distortion and exaggeration.

  8. Justė

    Man visad knieti perskaityti knyg , jeigu inau, kad ji vienintel to autoriaus para yta knyga, o jeigu ji dar vienintel garsaus siurrealizmo dailininko knyga, tai i vis galiu nu okt nuo proto Dideli iliuzij susik rusi nebuvau, bet tik jausi ka ko kitokio ir domaus Ta iau net ir tuos menku ius l kes ius is romanas sugeb jo nuvilti Su ituo romanu vos nepapuoliau neskaitadienius Skait si labai sunkiai, labai l tai, bene u migdavau su ranka knygose Buvo ne domu Daug veik j , kuri pus nereikalinga, o [...]

    The verbal Dali is different than the visual Dali He doesn t write straight forwardly surrealistically rather, he couches the plausible events that occur in his fictional world in strange metaphors, in the associations that exist within the minds of his characters I recall a particularly thrilling passage in the opening pages where he equates a woman s bare knees with the skulls of children.If you decide to get this book, don t expect it to read like a description of one of Dali s paintings Expe [...]

    Nu a fi crezut niciodat c Dali st p ne te at t de bine tehnica scrisului Ini ial crezusem c scrie din vanitate, doar pentru a bifa nc un segment artistic printre performan ele personale, dar lectura avea s mi dovedeasc contrariul.Ocultism, tehnici sexuale exotice, psihanaliz toate fac deliciul acestui roman, n care marca dalinian e usor de recunoscut pentru admiratori, at t prin estetismul meticulos c t i prin extravagan a conceptului abordat sub pretextul unui roman de dragoste.O experien inter [...]

    This surprised me undoing a prejudice that a visual artist wouldn t be able to write a good novel It had real depth and intrigued me all the way through Occasionally it was very bad, but it had a raw power throughout.

  12. Daniel Olbris

    An interesting thing that I learned from this book is that the novel is in fact a distinct kind of book, as opposed to just any sort of story of a certain length Hidden faces made me aware of that though its being a very strange novel, but still being distinctly a novel Not sure how to put that specfically Hopefully people who read the book would concur It is an interesting commentary on the self importance of members of the social elite, contrasted with the substantive abilities of less elite [...]

    I just finished reading it The influence from Stendhal is quite obvious throughout the book, mainly in the way Dali pictures and analyzes the complexity of its fatal protagonists.However, I got quite confused into the place and time of the story as the descriptions reminded me of an earlier era than that of the pre world war II Of course, surreal scenes and straightforward life insights are quite numerous, justifying Dali as maybe the greatest artist genious of the 20th century.There were some t [...]

  14. tENTATIVELY, cONVENIENCE

    Dali wrote this in 2 wks Wch is certainly remarkable It s an ok novel, it has a few distinct quirky characteristics, but what I can most relate to about it is that Dali writes in his foreward that when he took a 2 wk vacation from NYC wrote this he then went back to NYC checked in to see what his friends had been doing in the meantime found out that basically nothing had changed They d just been hanging out or whatever Some of us are driven but most people aren t I don t file this under Surreali [...]

    This work is so rich with images It was like getting to get inside his art, and meet the people, and turn corners, and hang out in a opium tent, and then get in of his art and start all over Wonderful

  16. John

    One of the best books I have ever read I was reading it slowly, because after a few pages I had to stop and let my soul be filled with what I had read, and was unable to continue, overwhelmed by emotion.

  17. Priya

    Very complex language, but beautifully written though translated from Spanish As complex and dramatic as his artwork Loved it.

  18. Anna Jones

    i excepted his novel to be sort of like reading pink floyd s the Wall , but it was much straightforward and less surreal than i thought
