Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a great novel . . . Your heart will be broken. You will be confused and confounded. You will laugh aloud. And at least for a time, however hard you try, your own world will refuse to be what you think it is. (James Sallis, author of Drive, in the Los Angeles Times Book Review)

About the Author

Boris Vian was a novelist, poet, jazz trumpeter, singer, translator, critic, actor, inventor, and engineer. He was the emblematic figure of the postwar Paris cultural milieu: friend to Camus, de Beauvoir, and Sartre (until Sartre seduced his wife); the Parisian champion of Duke Ellington and Miles Davis; the inspiration for and mentor to Serge Gainsbourg; the French translator of Raymond Chandler. Vian, who had suffered a pulmonary edema in 1956, died of cardiac arrest in 1959, at age thirty-nine, during a screening of a Hollywood adaptation of one of his novels, outraged at the American interpretation of his novel, set in America, where he had never been. His last words were reportedly: "These guys are supposed to be American? My ass!" Stanley Chapman was a British architect, designer, writer, and translator, most notably of Vian and Raymond Queneau. He was the founder of Outrapo and a member of Oulipo, the Collège de 'Pataphysique (of which Vian was also a member), and the Lewis Carroll Society. He died in 2009.

This novel is so many things all wrapped into one. A magical surrealist tale of love and relationships. Definitely worth reading.

A good book, but not a casual read. This book is full of surreal and beautiful images. It is also dark. If you want more information, read it.

Honestly, I think the translation of this is off. Little things like calling skin "epidermis" in situations where a native English speaker wouldn't. Quite a few other things like that. It was disappointing because I was so distracted by the language choices that I didn't enjoy the actual story as much as I would have otherwise. If only I spoke French...
