Author Biography - Boris Vian

Boris Vian (1920-1959) Vian celebrated his extraordinary imagination with a disorganized career of writing, playing music, throwing and attending parties and attacking any form of pretension or bureaucracy. His works range from the bestselling sex-and-violence thrillers under the name of Vernon Sullivan through popular songs, plays, short stories, to the beautiful and surreal novels.
