"Sometimes I think that when Luis left he took my sight with him, and now I can't do very much. Since Luis was my life, it's over."--Jeanne Rucar de Bunuel

Jeanne Rucar de Bunuel was married to the great Spanish filmmaker Luis Bunuel for fifty years. Published in Spanish in 1990, this is Jeanne Bunuel's tender and witty riposte to the master's autobiography, "My Last Sigh," which "barely mentions his family." Here Mrs. Bunuel sets the record straight, having sacrificed her own ambitions to keep house as wife and mother through some of the most important events in world and cinema history in the twentieth century. In eleven chapters, including "Marriage," "Life in the States," "Animals," and "The Death of Luis," Bunuel relates in loving, though at times painful, detail what it was like to live with a famous man who was a surrealist in his art but a traditionalist at home. The afterword by the Bunuel sons, Juan Luis and Rafael, provides a caring look back at both parents.

Jeanne Rucar (Lefebvre) de Bunuel (1908-1994) was born in Lille, France. Exiled from Spain following the Spanish Civil War, and after a brief sojourn in Hollywood, the Bunuel family settled in Mexico, where Jeanne Bunuel died in 1994.

Marisol Martin del Campo is a writer based in Mexico City.
