choreography of Nijinsky It is incredibly hard to pull this sort of thing off without seeming twee or annoying and Vian just doesn t seem twee or annoying I ve stared at some of these passages till I was cross eyed and I still don t understand how he manages it but it works I believe everything he saysThis is a very funny book it owes a debt to PG Wodehouse noteast in the character of Nicolas the butler who in my head was played by 90s Stephen Fry It s also sexy as hell Vian managing to succeed in that very continental tradition of respectful objectivisation a neat oxymoron to pull off the

really just an extended adult fairy tale As the book goes on you gradually realise in my case with a terrible sense of regret that what Vian is really doing is setting up an Edenic picture of youngove

Differently life while you re still young this novel says because before you know it you re going to have to go out there and earn aiving and then your whole ife will stop being about creativity and

hyperbole of the book in general respectable adulthood isn t just a chore it s the apocalypse Forget about wistful wishy washy endings in this one all your favourite characters end up wasting away burning to death getting shot having their hearts cut out or committing suicide Welcome to France population miserableThe violence is actually there from the very beginning in a cartoony kind of way and Vian has a very artful way of allowing you to realise that those cartoon injuries are in fact bleeding real blood I d be Angels Whiskey lying if I said part of me wasn t hoping for aife affirming ending but it s hard to object when you re being played so expertly This book is Ritual Alliances of the Putian Plain: Volume Two: A Survey of Village Temples and Ritual Activities like nothing you ve read a blend of Wodehouse Huysmans Faulkner and Lewis Carrol all set to a pounding soundtrack of Vian s beloved boogie woogie and blues music It is the dream of being young and the nightmare of

in its coils isost in a abyrinth of musical iterary artistic references revolving around the simple core of the tale Then tragedy starts to eak through the flowery surface of this dreamscape and a sense of claustrophobia works its way through our heart Vian was only 26 when he wrote this short wonderful book and yet he already possessed the techniue and sensitivity of an old Master This bouuin is the ultimate accomplishment of the1920s iterary Surrealism a bewildering preview of the 1960s Nouvelle Vague a perfect specimen of French Po mo not to mention Vian s incomparable writing style His

Empieza a crecer en el interior de Chloé y tras os primeros instantes de sorpresa un manto de melancolía parece cubrir a viveza de todos. L cume Des Jours Foam of the Daze Mood Indigo If what I ike to call the romantic side of me was to write a book it wouldn t be that exactly but something very close to it Boris Vian builds an enchanting world of pink clouds and cotton candy made of rays of sunshine just to tear it apart with a dashing blow He plants ittle blue flowers in your mind just to unleash a herd of omnivorous sheep that will voraciously feed on them along with all that s beautiful and sweet He knew that the prettier the atmosphere the devastating the destruction would be It s ike painting the most beautiful picture using the brightest colors just to set it on fire before you can even admire it Apart from all that this is a novel that s full of witty allegories about pretty much everything and which I m sure that I didn t uite get even half of Not that it matters anyway You can just open this book and et it guide you through a world of fluffy surrealism to the steepest downhill ever imaginable without bothering about too much Boy oves girl and girl oves boy in a world where no hell can break Fiesta Moon loose for it was never restrained in the first place On the contrary hell is present in every pink fucking cloud and every singing flower that blooms under the shards of sunshine which illuminate and are illuminated by the beautiful girl inove Not recommended to optimists and teddy bears There has been three translations of L ecme des jours Brian Harper s translation Foam of the Daze my press TamTam Books Mood Indigo American trans and this British edition translated by Stanley Chapman Froth on the Daydream Translations are a fascinating subject matter because basically it is how one ooks at a book and how they tell the tale in a anugage that is suibtable for that book or culture Since I am the publisher I of course nod towards Brian s translation one because he s American who The Taste of Night lives in Paris and has an understanding of Vian s world and times As well as giving theanguage an American tone I think Vian s work translated into English works better with an American English voice due to the nature of the work And this is not saying Vian doesn t ike British iterature because he does there is outright The Trust love for PG Wodehouse in this particular novel but overall theove of Jazz is extremely important in Vian s work and American English to my ears fit the material Also Brian is a superb writer But Chapman s translation is very interesting for instance he drops reference to Jean Luc Godard in the first few pages which is not in the original by any means since the book was written in 1946 but the playful of the images and names is one of the charms of this novel and for sure it is probably a monster of a book to translate in any A Scandalous Regency Christmas language than French Oh well some random thoughts After watching the new movieast week I had to reread the book Well the text version is better but the movie is reasonably faithful to it and does sometimes manage to supply a charming or witty illustration For exampleLe pianocktail chaue note dit Colin je fais correspondre un alcool une The Return liueur ou un aromate La

and there s the music of Duke Ellington or traditional jazz Everything else can go because All The Rest Is the rest is and the few pages which follow as an illustration of this draw their entire strength from the fact that the story is completely true since I made it up from beginning to end Here s the promise and the warning that Boris Vian gives us in the introduction to his 1947 novel The promise of beauty and the warning of ugliness both of them to be found within the pages of his modern fairytale Call it if you want an existentialist ove story or a horrible surreal comedy a continuation of the principle that started in antiuity carpe diem passed through the pen of Robert Herrick gather ye rosebuds while ye may and Gender Justice landed in France there to be reconciled with the negation of God theeftist sympathies and the passion for jazz among the intellectuals freuenting the cafes down Boulevard Saint Germain des PresFor me the experience of my first novel by Boris Vian is best described in terms of jazz It is experimental it has a definite theme romantic Generations and Collective Memory love meets cruel reality and within this frame iteaves room for improvization and for instrumental solos The text experiments with reality we ive in a magical futuristic world a skewed frame of reference with which the author confounds and distorts the expectations of the reader The game is expanded to all senses scenes are described in terms of either pastel or primary clashing colours tastes are tied up to sounds in terms of either pastel or primary clashing colours tastes are tied up to sounds in preparation of cocktails cooking is done by mixing exotic and sometimes incompatible ingredients Dialogues are either whimsical or absurdist sending me back to memories of Lewis Carroll or Eugene Ionesco Words are broken into pieces and then re assembled into new shapes and roles Hyperbole is ever present in declared sentiments in atitudes or in set pieces an ice rink a dance hall a wedding an auditorium at the Sorbonne a factory floor etc Vian does not go as far out field as the ater generation that embraced be bop but what he does here can be considered revolutionary and uniue for the times the novel was published His From Notes to Narrative love for Duke Ellington is I Inmersos en su universo peculiar donde cualuier cosa es

One ies flat one tummy and stares A hedge some pebbles a few gnarled trees and half a dozen eaves complete the scene They re a great help And Chloe said Chick And Chloe of course said Colin Chloe on my mind I guess you can tell from my uotes so far that this is a boy meets girl kind of story whimsical and sweet and mostly pink and ight blue in tone with fluffy white clouds scateerred artistically in the sky A perfect April in Paris kind of mood Which is true if the reader is willing to ignore the occasional jarring notes that Black British Cultural Studies: A Reader leave a trail of bloody dismembered tranmpled by elephants crushed by falling roofs etc bodies scattered around the edges of the main plot Colin is happy he has found the girl of his dreams there is music in hisife and he feels generous towards his friends Existentialism can be fun right He was running and he was scared Why can t we always be together Things were always happening to alarm us Wrong This is still the real world that we see distorted under the artistic ens of Boris Vian This is stil written under the influence of Sartre and Beauvoir and Camus on a side note is it possible that the grotesue portrait of Jean Pulse Heartre in the novel has anything to do with Vian s wife having an affair with the philosopher People get sick and need to see a doctor People need to work for money before they can relax with a drink istening to a hot jazz number Governments still spend the better part of their budget on military adventures And some people are concerned about books than about the real person waiting right by their side But he Bryozoan Evolution loves his books than me wails one of the band players I don t have a fast tempo dark and wild number to suggest right now but I m sure there are a few to be foundistening to from Duke Ellington Or you can picture the famous scene from Charlie Chaplin s Hard Times Down below in front of each mammoth machine a man was struggling struggling as not to be slashed and torn apart by the voracious cogs facing him Every man s right foot was held down by a heavy iron ring They were only et off twice a day at night and at noon I was both enchanted and disturbed by the story of Colin and Chloe Chick and Allysum thrilled by the experimental nature of Boris Vian s prose and by his imagery I would use some Salvador Dali images to illustrate my review if I were not sort of azy right now and rushing to go back to another novel I would ike to watch the Michel Gondry film version since I believe Audrey Tatou is perfect for the role of Chloe Finally
