My last sigh by Luis Buñuel ( Book )
161 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in 16 languages and held by 1,381 libraries worldwide
"Luis Bunuel lived many lives - surrealist, Spanish Civil War propagandist, hedonist, friend of artists and poets, and filmmaker. With surprising candor and wit, Bunuel offers his sometimes scathing opinions on the literati and avante-garde members of his sweeping social circle, including Pablo Picasso, Jorge Luis Borges, Salvador Dali, and Federico Garcia Lorca. These colorful stories of his nomadic life reveal a man of stunning imagination and influence." --Book Jacket.
