(14900-14900-1-1---0) In Paris in the 1950s Boris Vian was everything-poet, fiction writer, singer, subversive, actor, musician, and jazz critic. He was my friend, and I admired him passionately for his eclecticism, devastating irony, and taste for provocation. Fortunately, in France since his death Boris Vian has become the object of a veritable cult, and his work constantly is being reprinted. REVIEWSTen avant-garde fables of serious whimsy, ushered in by Older's useful introduction, bibliography, and discography, The collection displays Vian's range from gallows humor to verbal fireworks, Playful and tough, fresh and zany. –Publishers WeeklyBlues for a Black Cat has the unmistakable flavor of the time and place, the absurdist messages of rebellion, verbal riffs and goofy anarchic encounters; an expiring jazz-man who sells his sweat, a cat with a British accent, and a piano that mixes a cocktail when Mood Indigo is played. -Boston GlobeVian has a cult of followers, many attracted by his virtuosity, but it is his humanity, that insures enduring interest in his work. -Austin Chronicle.
