Almost certainly it would be Ursula Kubler for the French, (she lives In the south of France and should be contactable through any recent publisher of L'Ecume" and for the English Translation -- Stanley Chapman who lives in London and should be contactable through various publishers there.

VIAN, Boris FROTH ON THE DAYDREAM London (1967) Rapp & Carroll. (6)7- 221 pp. Green cloth. Translated by Stanley Chapman.

Or Penguin who published froth. Or Quartet Encounters who republished Froth recently).

You could write to Sophie de Nodrest who met him last year for her dissertation on his book. sophie.htm

Hi Matt,

I thought the Boris Vian Foundation had a web sites but i can't find it anywhere.

I heard this some time ago: "For Vian Rights - Fayard Editions in Paris. The fax number is 0033 1 45 49 82 54, the boss of this section is Mrs Marine Bertea."

I believe you can contact Le Fondation Boris Vian in Paris (6 bis cite veron) to enquire about the rights.
