From one of France's greatest literary artists comes this thrilling nonfiction account of drug addiction and the cure

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.
