Mood Indigo (FSG Classics) free pdf The basis of the new major movie from Michel Gondry, starring Audrey Tautou, the beloved French modern classic hailed as "the most poignant love story of our time" by Raymond QueneauThe story is simple: Boy meets girl- boy marries girl- girl falls ill on their honeymoon with a water lily on the lung, which can only be treated by being surrounded by flowers- boy goes broke desperately trying to keep his true love alive. First published in 1947, "Mood Indigo "perfectly captures the feverishly creative, melancholy romance of mid-century Saint-Germain-des-Pres. Recently voted number ten on "Le Monde"'s list of the 100 Books of the Century (the top ten also included works by Camus, Proust, Kafka, Hemingway, and Steinbeck), Boris Vian's novel has been an icon of French literature for fifty years the avant-garde, populist masterpiece by one of twentieth-century Paris's most intriguing cultural figures, a touchstone for generations of revolutionary young people, a jazz-fueled, science-fiction-infused, sexy, fantastical, nouveau-decadent tear-jerker that has charmed and beguiled hundreds of thousands of readers around the world. With the help of Michel Gondry and Audrey Tautou, it is set to seduce many, many more."

About Boris Vian

Boris Vian was a novelist, poet, jazz trumpeter, singer, translator, critic, actor, inventor, and engineer. He was the emblematic figure of the postwar Paris cultural milieu: friend to Camus, de Beauvoir, and Sartre (until Sartre seduced his wife)- the Parisian champion of Duke Ellington and Miles Davis- the inspiration for and mentor to Serge Gainsbourg- the French translator of Raymond Chandler. Vian, who had suffered a pulmonary edema in 1956, died of cardiac arrest in 1959, at age thirty-nine, during a screening of a Hollywood adaptation of one of his novels, outraged at the American interpretation of his novel, set in America, where he had never been. His last words were reportedly: "These guys are supposed to be American? My ass!" Stanley Chapman was a British architect, designer, writer, and translator, most notably of Vian and Raymond Queneau. He was the founder of Outrapo and a member of Oulipo, the College de 'Pataphysique (of which Vian was also a member), and the Lewis Carroll Society. He died in 2009."
