"The Dead All Have The Same Skin" by Boris Vian (Vernon Sullivan) TamTam Books


The Dead All Have The Same Skin

By Boris Vian. Introduction by Marc Lapprand. Translated by Paul Knobloch.

Vian’s second noir novel under the Vernon Sullivan pseudonym is a brutal tale of racism in postwar New York City, as protagonist Daniel Parker is blackmailed by a long lost brother. Also included is the short story “Dogs, Desire and Death,” and Vian’s account of the controversies surrounding his previous novel I Spit on your Graves.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS
Literary Hub
Appropriation and racial confusion themselves become motifs; the book reads like the nightmare of a person having an extreme identity crisis.
