Les Morts ont tous la même peau
Boris Vian, Éditions du Scorpion, original edition, 1947, Coll. Bfm - Limoges
Vian continued his exploration of the ‘noir’ novel with three other titles, including Les Morts ont tous la même peau (1947), followed by an adaptation of his best-seller for the theatre (1948) and for film (1959). Vian’s other books had little success: L’Automne à Pékin published by Jean d’Halluin (1947), L’Écume des jours by Gallimard (1947) and Les Fourmis, by Jean d’Halluin, 1949.
