Boris Vian

On June 23th, 1959, Boris Vian died just after the screening of J’irai cracher sur vos tombes (I Spit On Your Grave), a film adapted from his novel.

Between shadow and light, Boris Vian was doubtless one of the most talented writers of his times. Engineer, writer, poet, inventor, composer and interpret, he remains, six decades after his death, a free spirit of French literature. Boris Vian, had also a particularsmile, and a specific look on creation. A state of mind, unique and plural, but definitely uncategorizable.

Based on archives and sixty original testimonies (Michelle Vian, Juliette Gréco, Danielle Delorme, Jean-Jacques Pauvert...), this biography encompasses a short but tremendously rich life.
