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 life Foam of the Daze is a nimble fingered masterpiece that.
Are unluckier than others wading A smile is losing it s colder like ou saw a picture of the cold In the film I was livid when Colin must go to the party so his buddy Chick will not get the girlfriend first Some friend he is Film is watching someone being waited on feet and hands kissed like asses When did Colin become their leader Is it the blonde hair the money It must be the money he was first When Colin gets in love when Chloe s his wife Burning happiness in bed like a fed cat Chick and Alise aren t the Someone is telling ou about that wonderful dream they had but they are asleep They start falling before Colin does but maybe they are not necessary for him after all Nick falls down with him too he s catching up with the aged His niece A novel challenging classification in which verbal fireworks are in the driver s seatNevermind Boris Vian looking like Emmanuel Macron they are not made from the same dough Musicscape Brutal Swing Igorrr Roman plut t inclassable dans leuel la fantaisie verbale tient le haut du pav Lu sur l invite de mon p reFonds Musical Brutal Swing Igorrr 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 looks at a book and how they tell the tale in a lanugage 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 lives in Paris and has an understanding of Vian s world and times As well as giving the language an American tone I think Vian s work tra Oh absolute Joy Oh absolute annihilating cathartic Beauty of the WordIt s the third time I surrender to its magic and et the ineffable all pervading delight hasn t vanished so I d better write something coherent before letting the secret pleasures of the Stendhal syndrome overwhelm me It starts like La Boum and ends like Love StoryIt s a poem by Pr vert illustrated by Salvador Dal It s a white feather caressing Buckley and Wilberta your skin and leaving a bleeding sore that will never heal Only free association gives me the means 910 Only two things really matter there s love every kind of 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 ifou want an existentialist love 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 e rosebuds while e may and landed in France there to be reconciled with the negation of God the leftist 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 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 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 the 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 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. Is both witty and incredibly moving It is a story of a wealthy oung man Colin and the love of his life Chloe who develops a water lily in her lung The supporting cast includes Chick an obsessive collector of noted philosopher Jean Sol Partre's books.
