About the Author

Warren Motte is chair of the Department of French and Italian at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where he specializes in contemporary writing and focuses particularly on experimental works that challenge conventional notions of literary form. He has written several studies of contemporary French Literature, including Fables of the Novel: French Fiction Since 1990, available from Dalkey Archive Press. Translator and editor of Oulipo: A Primer of Potential Literature, he also edited an issue of the journal SubStance dedicated to the work of Jacques Jouet, and is a contributing editor to Context magazine.

Boris Vian (1920-1959) passa comme un meteore au milieu de notre siecle, laissant une trace eblouissante et vivace. Chantre des delires et des merveilles, alchimiste fecond du langage et des formes, messager audacieux de l'imaginaire, il nous offre des pages inspirees par la poesie des extremes, temoignant d'une volonte farouche de creer et de partager.
