Boris Vian wrote his Vernon Sullivan novels, of which this is one, not in the modern day but in the latter days of the original pulp boom. He was still an outsider, though: a French poet, songwriter, and surrealist/fabulist, associated with the likes of Queneau, Camus, and Sartre. While he might have enjoyed the pulp writers, he couldn't achieve their demented genius.
TO HELL WITH THE UGLY is, sadly, just boring. The pieces are there, assembled from an affection for the genre, but there's nothing holding it together enough to make it move. Boris Vian was a fan of jazz, and himself a trumpeter, so how about this: reading his Vernon Sullivan books is like listening to a weekend trumpeter play Groovin' High.
