My Last Sigh (okay, not mine but Buñuel's)

My Last Sigh: The Autobiography of Luis Buñuel
One of my favorite books, if only because it very seriously discusses the Martini and other libations.
Here are some quotes:
"To be frank, given the primordial role played in my life by the dry martini, I think I really ought to give it at least a page"
"I do drink other things, of course--vodka with my caviar, aquavit with smoked salmon"
"If I had to list all the benefits derived from alcohol, it would be endless"
"If alcohol is queen, then tobacco is her consort"
