Perhaps Jean Cocteau's most celebrated piece of nonfiction, this a truly gripping account of his drug addiction and cure, more than worthy of comparison with De Quincey's Confessions of an Opium Eater. The masterly illustrations also contained in this handsome volume, combined with his vivid, luxuriant prose can give no finer rendering of the agonies—and ecstasies—of addiction.
