J'irai cracher sur vos tombes (I Spit on Your Grave) is a 1946 crime novel by the French writer Boris Vian. Vian was a French polymath: writer, poet, musician, singer, translator, critic, actor, inventor and engineer. He is best remembered today for his novels. This particular story is set in the United States and revolves around a sexual and racial conflict.
Chris Petit of The Guardian reviewed the book in 2001, calling it "dreamily convincing", elaborating: "A main inspiration would have been the slew of Hollywood movies that opened in Paris after the liberation, identified by the French as films noirs. J'Irai Cracher Sur Vos Tombes is straight noir, but also a work of liberated imagination after four years of Nazi occupation: heady, abandoned, fevered and lubricious. A fusion of prime US pulp and French sado-eroticism".
