7. “Dalì is the biggest prick of the 20th Century”– said Henry Miller

In 1973, writer Henry Miller scrawled some notes, voicing his opinion of the great surrealist Salvador Dali.

“It all started in 1940, when Miller and his lover, the incomparable Anaïs Nin, spent some time cooped up in the same house with Dalí, who turned out to be an insufferable prima donna. Their time together ended in a wild shouting match, with Miller and Nin storming out of the home and holding a grudge for decades to come.”
