Belgium-born Stan Lauryssens was an art dealer specializing in works by Salvador Dali for over a decade. After spending time in prison for the sale of bogus Dalis, he turned to writing crime fiction. He won Belgium's Hercule Poirot Award in 2002 for best crime fiction of the year. He now divides his time between Antwerp and London.
"The art market is a dark circus of hope and deceit. Lauryssens provides us with an intimate portrait of Dali, its mustachioed ringmaster: as eccentric as he is ingenious, as manipulative as he is fascinating."---Noah Charney, author of "The Art Thief""A highly readable blend of memoir and picaresque, Stan Lauryssens's book explores the differences between the genuine and the bogus, not only in the business of art, but more important, in human relationships."---James Sexton, editor of "Selected Letters of Aldous Huxley"
