The Holy Terrors by Jean Cocteau

This disturbing novel from French surrealist Jean Cocteau concerns two siblings who isolate themselves from the world as they grow up, out of touch with reality, enveloping themselves in the fantasy world they've created for themselves. But as they grow older, the fantasy is shattered when they try to involve others in their secret games.

The book is illustrated with 20 drawings by Cocteau.
