Alexandra Schwartz writes about Boris Vian, author of the French cult classic “Mood Indigo”:
“That ‘L’Écume des Jours’ was written by the person behind ‘I Spit’ is jarring enough; to realize that they were written within months of each other is either to shrug and quote Whitman on containing multitudes or to infer schizophrenia.”
