Product Description

From Amazon

Lee Anderson, vingt-six ans, a quitté sa ville natale pour échouer à Buckton où il devient gérant de librairie. Il sympathise dans un bar avec quelques jeunes du coin. Grand, bien bâti, payant volontiers à boire, Lee, qui sait aussi chanter le blues en s'accompagnant à la guitare, réussit à séduire la plupart des adolescentes. Un jour il rencontre Dexter, le rejeton d'une riche famille qui l'invite à une soirée et lui présente les soeurs Asquith, Jean et Lou (17 et 15 ans), deux jeunes bourgeoises avec "une ligne à réveiller un membre du Congrès". Lee décide de les faire boire pour mieux les séduire... et poursuivre son sinistre dessein.

Ecrit à la suite d'un pari, cet excellent pastiche de roman noir fut publié en 1946 sous le pseudonyme de Vernon Sullivan, un prétendu auteur américain. Récit d'une vengeance, dénonciation du racisme et de l'intolérance, ce best-seller fut jugé à l'époque immoral et pornographique, ce qui amena son interdiction en 1949 et la condamnation de son auteur pour outrage aux bonnes moeurs. --Claude Mesplède

From the Back Cover

Si vous le lisez avec l'espoir de trouver dans J'irai cracher sur vos tombes quelque chose capable de mettre vos sens en feu, vous allez drôlement être déçu. Si vous le lisez pour y retrouver la petite musique de Vian, vous l'y trouverez. Il n'y a pas beaucoup d'écrits de Vian dont il ne suffise de lire trois lignes anonymes pour dire tout de suite : " Tiens, c'est du Vian ! " Ils ne sont pas nombreux, les écrivains dont on puisse en dire autant.

Format: Paperback
The first book from Vian I read was "L'ecume des jours", so I was a bit stunned when I first picked up this book. The style is totally different, far from the surrealism and the pun of the other book. Instead: action , violence and sex in "hardboiled" style, still seasoned with Vian's sarcasm. In fact, Vian wrote it using the pseudonym of Vernon Sullivan, pretending to be just the translator of this book "censored in the US and first published in France". His publisher was looking for an "american" novel, and Vian offered himself to write it, in 14 days; a proof of his ability, an hommage to his beloved America that he never visited , and a violent attack to racism by a jazz fan and performer.

J'ai grandement adoré ce livre, c'est ce livre qui ma fait découvrir Boris Vian, un très bon auteur. Depuis ce temps, il est devenu l'un de mes auteurs favoris. Ce roman a un style particulier, mais je conseille à tous le monde de le lire.

J'irai cracher sur vos tombes Jan. 31 2012
By White Alaska - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I saw a movie with the same title that was quite gory, worse than the book itself.

In the book, I was appalled by the pedophilia scene. However, I think that the book had a message about the way some men treat women (this I saw it repeatedly in my life time). Boris Vian is an excellent writer and I will try to get "Foam of the Daze," which is considered very good and quite different from "I will spit on your grave," which should not be recommended to anyone.
