*Paul Knobloch* and *Tosh Berman* presents and sign *The Dead All Have the
Same Skin*

Translator Knobloch and publisher Berman are proud to present the newest translation nof Vian's classic. Written one year after the controversial (putting it mildly) "I Spit on Your Graves," you think Vian would have known better.

But no, he decided to do another violent shocker that is ripped out of today's (or was it all in my head?) headlines. This surreal masterpiece of 'dark' writing is about Daniel Parker who is a bouncer in a drink hell bar hole somewhere in New York City (Vian, a French man never been to the States) who is blackmailed by his long lost brother who is black and threatens him to tell the truth about his brother's racial blood. Parker is not going to take that. His life, by that admission, becomes a tipsy topsey
one-way ticket to hell.

"I'll be seeing you."
