"The sense of two brilliant young men testing themselves against each other still comes across."--Financial Times Magazine
"Readers interested in either of these Spanish masters will find Sebastian''s Arrows of great interest."--Bloomsbury Review
"Thoughtfully and sensitively conceived, this is an intellectually sound and compelling volume. Highly recommended."--Choice
"An engaging and lively look at the relationship between Lorca and Dali. . . . This book demonstrates the powerful effect they had on each other and their work."--Rob Stokes "Spain "
"Clear and admirably straightforward. . . . A book quite attractive to the eye and hand. It will doubtless appeal to those with an interest in Lorca and/or Dali as it brings together a selection of their own words about themselves."--Canning House"British Bulletin of Publications" (10/01/2004)
"All through the twentieth century artists and writers collaborated almost constantly, sometimes with such intensity that it seemed as if they were passing back and forth a single flask labeled 'Inspiration.' . . . An infinitely more transparent glimpse into an artist's mind is to be found in "Sebastian's Arrows.""--Jed Perl"The New Republic" (12/13/2004)
