Read full description of the books:
1938 play by the great Jean Cocteau, supposedly meant to be a farce with the framework of popular theatre --so the melodramatic ending can perhaps be forgiven.
Banned in its era, it lacks the sting its original audience would have felt, but still has that claustrophobic, get-me-out-of-this family feel.
Psycho-sexual, semi-incestuous family relationships, plus plenty of quirk (A grandfather who obsessively counted semi-colons, and knows how many were in Balzac's La Cousine Bette.)
Worth it for the Cocteau completist.

Read information about the authorJean Maurice Eugène Clément Cocteau (5 July 1889 – 11 October 1963) was a French poet, novelist, dramatist, designer, boxing manager, playwright and filmmaker. Along with other Surrealists of his generation (Jean Anouilh and René Char for example) Cocteau grappled with the "algebra" of verbal codes old and new, mise en scène language and technologies of modernism to create a paradox: a classical avant-garde. His circle of associates, friends and lovers included Jean Marais, Henri Bernstein, Colette, Édith Piaf, whom he cast in one of his one act plays entitled Le Bel Indifferent in 1940, and Raymond Radiguet.
His work was played out in the theatrical world of the Grands Theatres, the Boulevards and beyond during the Parisian epoque he both lived through and helped define and create. His versatile, unconventional approach and enormous output brought him international acclaim.
