    1. Познатата вианска неповторимост, но за съжаление и „повторимост“ – защото половината от разказите в този сборник съм ги чела в „Човекът вълк“ от 1989 г. Те са си много хубави тези повтарящи се разкази, но не зная защо се бях настроила за разкази, издавани у нас за първи път, [...]


    2. Boris Vian's jazz writings might well be an acquired taste. He is very much a product of his time: sexist and racist (without realizing it; he obviously thinks himself racially progressive and enlightened), and far too caught up in the parochial squabbles between factions of French jazz critics that occurred in the 1940s and 1950s, and which nobody has cared about since. He is ridiculously prejudiced against white musicians, and his pronouncements regarding musicians who displease him are so inf [...]


    3. Boris Vian among other things was an obsessive Jazz fanatic. He wrote essays and reviews for numerous Jazz magazines in France during the late 40's. At the time there was this huge division between the New Orleans trads vs. the be-bop fans. The funny thing was Vian played in a New Orleans type of Jazz band (he played Trumpet) but was a major supporter of Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, etc. And knew these artists quite well.He wasn't a fan of George Gerswhin, because he thought at the time he took [...]


    4. One of the hippest books about jazz ever written. Boris Vian wrote for French magazines in the 40s and 50s. His writing comes closest to the style and mood of a great jazz improviser of any that I know. Stanley Crouch and Nat Hentoff are great at intellectualizing jazz, but Vian writes like he is playing a jazz solo.
