    Just picked up this big beautiful thing over at the National Gallery bookstore - 1,000+ pages, first time translated, gorgeous hardcover - has some epic potential!

    At long last translated into English, here's an enormous - and enormously sympathetic - biography of the weirdly eccentric artist, director, and writer Jean Cocteau. Here's my full review:openlettersmonthly/boo

    I’ve seen this long, meticulously and painstakingly researched and exhaustively detailed biography of Jean Cocteau described as “monumental” and “a landmark” – and I totally agree. Originally published in France in 2003 it has now been translated into English (and what a task that must have been) – and now around 1,000 pages of densely written text of often convoluted and high-flown narrative is now available to a wider audience. This is not a book for the faint-hearted as it deman [...]

    Exhaustive and exhausting. Before reading this book, I possessed only a superficial knowledge of Cocteau, founded mainly on his stunning movie, Beauty and the Beast. If you can make it through this tome (no small task), you'll know as much as you can ever know about a person from a biography. This book is difficult to follow at times, because the author has a penchant for identifying people by their creative works, rather than their names. However, it was worth persevering to learn how disappoin [...]

    1000-plus pages of easily the most frustrating and sometimes infuriating biography I've ever read--or at least, finished. Can't decide if it's Cocteau's fault or just a fixation of the author that renders this a bipolar, boom-bust narrative repeating in endless cycles of "Everyone loathes him," then suddenly he creates a work that everyone loves, then five minutes later (sometimes literally), everyone thoroughly despises him again. Cocteau appears to have been the most hated man in French arts a [...]

    The work is nothing but complete. It suffers from detail. The history of the arts in France in the 20th Century and Cocteau’s role is defined. I found myself referring to often as I have an extremely limited sense of French arts. I wish that the work was divided into two, one for his extraordinary life and loves and then a second volume of his arts and letters. He was an amazing individual. Can appreciate the scholarship.

    "The book is essential reading for anyone interested in French social and cultural history spanning Proustian Paris, two world wars, the modernist movement, and after. It offers a fascinating portrait of its conflicted subject whose mutability could be a challenge to any biographer." - Keith GarebianThis book was reviewed in the May 2017 issue of World Literature Today magazine.
