Cocteau's short work, published anonymously by the author (who never admitted to writing it; just providing some pictures), was translated by Austryn Wainhouse. This is the tale of a young man coming to grips with his own sexuality, seeking shelter in the church, and finally, in the land of Cambaceres, coming to terms with his own desires.

    La parte autobiografica in sé è molto breve (una 40ina di pagine) e io a dire la verità mi aspettavo qualcosa di più lungo. In quest'edizione comunque ci sono anche una raccolta di disegni erotici e una di testi erotici inediti.

    Per tanti motivi ho sempre nutrito molta simpatia per la figura di Cocteau e, naturalmente, amo di conseguenza anche questo suo piccolo compendio di fantasie ed hantises erotiche.

    il Libro Grigio

    Come la nebbia, il fumo denso e pesante...
    come la tristezza senza confini...
    come la misoginia.

    "Invece di adottare il vangelo di Rimbaud: 'Ecco il tempo degli assassini', la gioventù avrebbe fatto meglio a ricordare la frase: 'L'amore va reinventato'"
    Magnifica la raccolta di disegni, e ottima la postfazione.
