And playful genius L cume des Jours literally Foam f the Days translated as Foam Diaries of a College Girl of the Daze in the English edition is pure Baroue indeed a work in which the simplicityf the

pages which Everything else can go because all the rest is ugly and the few pages which as an illustration f 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 f beauty and the warning f ugliness both f them to be found within the pages f his modern fairytale Call it if you want an existentialist love story r a horrible surreal comedy a continuation f the principle that started in antiuity carpe diem passed through the pen f Robert Herrick gather ye rosebuds while ye may and landed in France there to be reconciled with the negation The Teachings of Spenser Carlyle: The Novel of God the leftist sympathies and the passion for jazz among the intellectuals freuenting the cafes down Boulevard Saint Germain des PresFor me the experiencef my first novel by Boris Vian is best described in terms f jazz It is experimental it has a definite theme romantic love meets cruel reality and within this frame it leaves room for improvization and for instrumental solos The text experiments with reality we live in a magical futuristic world a skewed frame f reference with which the author confounds and distorts the expectations Weirdo Noir: Gothic and Dark Lowbrow Art of the reader The game is expanded to all senses scenes are described in termsf either pastel The Message of Salvation: By God's Grace, for God's Glory or primary clashing colours tastes are tied up to sounds in the preparationf cocktails cooking is done by mixing exotic and sometimes incompatible ingredients Dialogues are either whimsical Anonymums or absurdist sending me back to memoriesf Lewis Carroll r 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 r 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 ut field as the later generation that embraced be bop but what he does here can be considered revolutionary and uniue for the times the novel was published His love for Duke Ellington is I believe reflected in the compact emotional and in the end carefully rchestrated final productLet s meet the members Practical Ventriloquism of the bandn

Mood Indigo American trans and this British edition translated by Stanley Chapman Froth n the Daydream Translations are a fascinating subject matter because basically it is how The Secret Child one looks at a book and how they tell the tale in a lanugage that is suibtable for that bookr culture Since I am the publisher I Japanese Schoolgirl Inferno: Tokyo Teen Fashion Subculture Handbook of course nod towards Brian s translationne because he s American who lives in Paris and has an understanding f Vian s world and times As well as giving the language an American tone I think Vian s work translated into English works better with an American English voice due to the nature f the work And this is not saying Vian doesn t like British literature because he does there is utright love for PG Wodehouse in this particular novel but verall the love f 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 riginal by any means since the book was written in 1946 but the playful f the images and names is ne f the charms f this novel and for sure it is probably a monster Hitler's Northern War: The Luftwaffe's Ill-Fated Campaign, 1940-1945 of a book to translate in any language
