Heartsnatcher by Boris Vian( Book )

216 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in 9 languages and held by 1,365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in a bizarre and slightly sinister town where the elderly are auctioned off at an Old Folks Fair, the townspeople assail the priest in hopes of making it rain, and the official town scapegoat bears the shame of the citizens by fishing junk out of the river with his teeth. Heartsnatcher is Boris Vian's most playful and most serious work." "The main character is Clementine, a mother who punishes her husband for causing her the excruciating pain of giving birth to three babies. As they age, she becomes increasingly obsessed with protecting them, going so far as to build an invisible wall around their property."--Jacket
L'Automne à Pékin by Boris Vian( Book )

200 editions published between 1947 and 2011 in 12 languages and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translated from the French by Paul Knobloch. Originally published in 1947. In the Exopotamian desert, where hepatrols blossom and children collect little animals called sandpeepers, the sun shines in an unusual way. It produces eerie black zones whose mysteries remain unexplained. Above all, Vian's pecurilar way with language proves that, indeed, life in the desert is equal to none. Since unusual language is bound to produce unusual fiction, it follows that the story does not take place in the fall, nor is it set in China - from the Foreword by Marc Lapprand. The fourth novel by Vian, who was a contemporary of Sartre and Beauvoir. His innovative style, cutting-edge during his lifetime, but only successful in the sixties, made him an icon of the May 1968 student movement
Blues for a black cat & other stories by Boris Vian( Book )

147 editions published between 1949 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verbal Niagaras, zany sexual encounters, and absurd situations. But, as Julia Older points out, parody only heightens the masked terrors of war, poverty, ill health, and unemployment that hound the bizarre protagonists of Vian's fablelike narratives
The empire builders by Boris Vian( Book )

38 editions published between 1959 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J'irai cracher sur vos tombes by Boris Vian( Book )

191 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Réédition d'un célèbre roman de Boris Vian, (publié sous le pseudonyme de Sullivan) en 1946 et interdit en 1949. Scènes érotiques d'un réalisme assez poussé. Le vocabulaire n'est jamais ordurier. A noter que ce roman, écrit à la suite d'un pari, est sans doute, la plus superficielle des oeuvres de Vian
Elles se rendent pas compte by Boris Vian( Book )

199 editions published between 1947 and 2011 in 12 languages and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quand Francis Deacon, aidé de son frère Richard, décide de s'habiller en souris pour aider une autre souris, son amie d'enfance Gaya ... cela donne un roman féroce et drôle mettant en scène une jeunesse américaine débauchée, droguée et criminelle
L'herbe rouge; roman. Les lurettes fourrées; nouvelles by Boris Vian( Book )

167 editions published between 1950 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A frothing admixture of Breton, Freud, Carroll, Hammett, Kafka and Wells, "Red Grass" is one of Vian's finest and most enduring works, a satire on psychoanalysis--which Vian wholly and vigorously disapproved of--that inflects science fiction with dark absurdity and the author's great wit. Much in the novel can be regarded as autobiography, as our hero attempts to liberate himself from past traumatic events in the arenas of religion, social life and--of course--sex
Le loup-garou, suivi de douze autres nouvelles by Boris Vian( Book )

Trouble dans les Andains by Boris Vian( Book )

105 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cuatro amigos --el refinado Adelfín, el estrafalario y lúbrico Serafinio, el mayor Loostiló, policía en la reserva, y su compinche Antioquío--parten en busca de un misterioso y pequeño artefacto, el 'barbarón bifido', desaparecido o quizá robado druante una fiesta. En un flamante Cadillac, en hidroavión o en barco de vela, armados hasta los dientes y dejando tras de sí un reguero un tanto sangriento, los cuatro (o los que van quedando vivos por el camino) viajan desde París hasta el sur de Francia viviendo terroríficas y rocambolescas aventuras. Mientras lanzan explosivos y departen sobre lo divino y lo humano, se topan con personajes entrañables como el inca Poptepec Atlazotl, que los protege desde su avión de combate, con desalmados como el barón Visi, con bellas azafatas como Florence, con temibles ex socios como el holandés Vandenbuic, o con animales an inclasificables como el célebre Rhizostomus gigantea azurea oceanensis, también llamado, cariñosamente, 'rizo'"--Cover, p. 4
