However, this novel was to suffer the same fate as his first work "Les cents sonnets" not receiving publication until In the early 40s Vian also began devoting more time to his musical activities, becoming resident trumpet-player with the jazz band set up by French clarinettist Claude Abadie Abadie renamed the group the Orchestre Abadie-Vian to mark the occasion.
The Orchestre Abadie-Vian went on to perform several short tours and also took part in several amateur jazz contests. Around Vian had his first works published under various pseudonyms including Hugo Hochebuisson and Bison Ravi a suitably comic anagram of Boris Vian. It was under the latter that he wrote one of his most outspoken works - a poem about the Germans banning American jazz. It was also around this time that Vian began to take a keen interest in songwriting, penning early works such as "Au bon vieux temps" a song set to music by one of his good musician friends, Johnny Sabrou.
However, at this stage of Vian's career, songwriting remained a rather 'marginal' activity - it was not until the s that Vian would really start devoting serious time to his songwriting work. In Vian signed a contract with French publishing house Gallimard and later that year his novel "Vercoquin et Plancton" appeared in bookshops.

The following year Vian went on to make a major impact on the French literary scene with the publication of his most famous novel, "L"Ecume des jours". It was around this period that Vian was accepted into the Saint-Germain literary clique and began spending time with its leaders Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre. Just a few months after the publication of "L'Ecume des jours", Vian caused another major literary stir with "J'irai cracher sur vos tombes" - a witty pastiche of the American thriller genre.
In typical Vian form, he published the novel under the name Vernon Sullivan and claimed he himself was the translator! Many leading critics slammed the 'iconoclastic' contents of "J'irai cracher sur vos tombes", but this did not stop Vian's novel from shooting to the top of the best-seller list in In the post-war years France's artistic and cultural life thrived with renewed vigour. The capital was invaded by new clubs, bars and jazz music and the young generation threw themselves into non-stop partying and hedonism.
Needless to say, Boris Vian found himself at the centre of this exciting whirl of activity.
Boris and his brother Alain proved to be the life and soul of Le Tabou, getting the tiny jazz club swinging each night with their popular jazz band. Legend has it that Vian even wrote Le Tabou's legendary 'anthem' "Ah!
Unfortunately, as Le Tabou reached the height of its popularity Vian came down with a bout of ill health again and this time he was forced to give up his trumpet-playing. Vian reconverted his jazz expertise into writing, however, joining the editorial team of the French magazine "Jazz Hot" in Over the next ten years he wrote a series of respected articles on his favourite subject and also edited a regular press review. It was here that he organised concerts by a whole host of legendary U.

Meanwhile, the multi-talented Vian had already turned his hand to a new profession, writing his first cabaret shows. It was also around this period that Vian began to supplement his income by translating American thrillers. Most famously, Vian would translate Raymond Chandler's novels and short stories for the French publishing house Gallimard. In , while continuing to work for Jazz Hot, Vian also landed another important post, becoming editor of another leading French jazz magazine, Jazz News.

By this stage of his career Vian was spending an increasing amount of time on the jazz scene - a passion which caused him to give up his 'official' day job at the "Office professionnel des industries et commerces du papier et du carton" The Office of Trade and Industry for the Paper and Cardboard. Meanwhile, Vian continued to plug away at his songwriting and in scored his first big hit with "C'est le be-bop".

As for young Henri Salvador, Vian would keep on working with him throughout the 50s and the pair enjoyed a whole string of hits together. In the early 50s, the multi-talented Vian began branching out in a new direction, devoting an increasing amount of time to the theatre. In , for example, he staged "L'Equarrissage pour tous", a play whose textual rhythm owed a lot to music and jazz syncopation. By this stage of his career Vian was experimenting more and more frequently with intricate wordplay, transforming his texts into elaborate vocal ballets.
Meanwhile, Vian's personal life underwent a series of radical changes. List this Seller's Books. Payment Methods accepted by seller. AbeBooks Bookseller Since: August 14, Stock Image.
