About the Author
Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) was a French writer, poet, designer, draftsman, sculptor, filmmaker, and boxing manager. His list of friends--including New Directions' founder James Laughlin--would read like a catalog of the stars of the twentieth-century avant-garde. He died of a heart attack after being informed of the death of his friend, the singer Edith Piaf.
