Product description

Vian translated the joy and swing of jazz into prose in his columns "jazz hot" and "combat" in the 1940's and 1950's. since Vian's french is impossible to translate literally, and since many of his pieces were written for their time and place, this anthology is a selective and adaptive collection: the best of Boris Vian.
