L'Ecume des jours Foam of the Daze is a jazz fueled Science Fiction story that is both romantic and nihilistic Vian's novel is an assortment of bittersweet romance absurdity and the frailty of Moanas New Friend (Disney Moana) life Foam of the Daze is a nimble fingered masterpiece that.

get trout In the middle of the table Colin has a centrepiece consisting of a jar of formaldehyde in which two chicken embryos appeared to be miming the Spectre de Midnight Fantasies la Rose in the 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 girls are adorable and everybody at Men of Steele Bundle least at first seems young and beautiful and comfortably off Theatent sexiness creeps into the narrative voice in all kinds of ways at one point a door clicks shut with the sound of a bare hand on a bare bottom avec Million-Dollar Nanny le bruit d une main nue sur une fesse nueBut what is actually going on here Is it 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 only to stress the awfulness of what comes after You d better have the most acrobatic sex and the most delicious meals of your The Millionaires Waitress Wife (The Brubaker Brides, 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 start being about where the money is coming from It s horrible Colin says at one point about work It reduces man to the ranks of machinery An old man in a white shirt with bushy hair was reading a manual behind a desk Good morning sir said Colin Good morning sir said the manHis voice was cracked and thickened with age I ve come about the job said Colin Oh said the man We ve been ooking for someone for a month without any The Millionaires Miracle luck It s uite hard work you know Yes said Colin But it s well paid Good Lord said the man it wears you out you know and it might not be worth the money but it s not for me to denigrate the administration At any rate you can see I m still alive Have you been working hereong said Colin A year said the man I m 29 He ran a trembling wrinkled hand across the folds of his faceIt s the novel of someone in their twenties facing the ooming prospect of "Adult Life In Keeping "life In keeping the hyperbole of the book in general respectable adulthood isn t just a chore it s the apocalypse

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 ying if I said part of me wasn t hoping for a Mine Under the Mistletoe life affirming ending but it s hard to object when you re being played so expertly This book isike 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

every kind of Maverick Christmas love with every kind of pretty girl and there s the music of Duke Ellington or traditional jazz Everything else can go because all the rest is ugly 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
