Impossible de lui répondre. »

De ce livre singulier Jean Cocteau déclara : « Mon oeuvre begin avec Le Potomak ; c’est une sorte de préface. » En effet, cette oeuvre hybride, alternant dessins et textes, d’une liberté absolue de forme, fut composée à l’aube de l. a. Première Guerre mondiale, et l’artiste l. a. tiendra toujours pour son authentique preferable livre. On y retrouve d’ailleurs le célèbre aphorisme dont il aurait pu faire sa devise : « Ce que le public te reproche, cultive-le, c’est toi. »
