FOAM OF THE DAZE - Absurd Novel / Bizarre Fiction by Boris Vian



FOAM OF THE DAZE (L'Ecume des Jours) - Novel/Fiction By Boris Vian

Boris Vian was an engineer, inventor, chronicler of jazz, trumpet player, poet, creator of spectacles and scandals, lyric writer, singer, novelist, and of course pataphysician.

Tam Tam Books publication of Boris Vian's masterpiece FOAM OF THE DAZE (L'Ecume des Jours) with a new translation by Brian Harper has the full approval of the Vian estate.

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. It is a nimble-fingered masterpiece that is witty and incredibly moving. IT IS THE STORY OF A WEALTHY YOUNG MAN, COLIN, AND THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE, CHLOE, WHO DEVELOPS A WATER LILY IN HER LUNG!

"The most heartbreakingly poignant modern love story ever written"
--- Raymond Queneau

"A kind of jazzy, cheerful, sexy, sci-fi mid 20th century Huysmans..."
--- Richard Hell
