By Jean Cocteau
« N’ayant pas l’apparence qu’il eût souhaitée, ne répondant pas au variety idéal qu’il se formait d’un jeune homme, Jacques n’essayait plus de rejoindre ce kind dont il se trouvait trop loin. Il enrichissait faiblesses, tics et ridicules jusqu’à les sortir de los angeles gêne. Il les portait, volontiers, au most popular plan. À cultiver une terre ingrate, à forcer, à embellir de mauvaises herbes, il avait pris quelque selected de dur qui ne s’accordait guère avec sa douceur. Ainsi, de mince qu’il était, s’était-il fait maigre ; de nerveux, écorché vif. Coiffant difficilement une chevelure jaune plantée en tous sens, il l. a. portait hirsute. »
Dans ce roman écrit en 1923, Jean Cocteau mêle tendresse, humour et légèreté, comme pour un pastiche. Mais derrière ces pirouettes et ces clins d’oeil, se cache un sourire plus grave.
Le texte est illustré d’une vingtaine de dessins de l’artiste, qui ponctuent avec poésie et drôlerie les scènes du livre.
