520 1  "Drawn from Isaac's personal papers, Midday with Bunuel is
       an intimate and unconventional portrait of this cinematic 
       icon - and memoir of Isaac's own artistic development. The
       text includes sketches, vignettes, and anecdotes from 
       Isaac's notebooks, revealing his perspective first as a 
       precocious boy and then as a young man. Isaac reflects on 
       Bunuel's presence among a community of exiles, artists, 
       actors, writers, and intellectuals in Mexico City. These 
       are at once touching, perceptive, and critical glimpses 
       into Bunuel's roles as husband and father, friend and 
       colleague, surrealist, philosopher, and iconoclast during 
       his last years. Throughout, Isaac's words reveal his deep 
       admiration and affection for an older friend." "Intimate 
       photographs from the Isaac family archive complement the 
       writing, and Bryan T. Scoular's careful translation makes 
       this text available for the first time in English. The 
       foreword by James D. Fernandez offers the reader eloquent 
       insight into this " 'biography' of Luis Bunuel, which is 
       structured not by the stepping-stones of his career, but 
       by the self-spun spider's web of his many contradictions, 
       as they are perceived, assimilated, and recorded by a 
       chronicler who is himself always in motion and full of 
       contradictions."" "Part biography, part memoir, Midday 
       with Bunuel brings to life the creative milieu of Mexico 
       City and gives readers a privileged view of the 
       relationship between these two filmmakers."--BOOK JACKET.
