Jean Levy known as Jean Ferry (1906 - 1974) was a French writer and follower of the 'pataphysical tradition'. He was an exegete of Raymond Roussel, nephew of the publisher/writer José Corti. In the second edition of Anthology of Black Humour (1950), André Breton added one of his texts Le Tigre mondain, with a foreword. Jean Ferry also contributed to surrealist magazine Le Minotaure, for which he wrote an essay Concerning King Kong[1] and wrote the foreword to Ado Kyrou's Le Surréalisme au cinéma. He was also crucial to the development of the arts magazine Bizarre.
