Alibris.com has some copies for sale. I bought one and the service was good.

I'm French and I'm translating L'écume des jours into English. it seemed to me that the previous translations (Chapman's especially) were much too "permissive", which hid the desperate side of the novel. I wanted to render the full creativity of the author, without exaggerating everything as zealous Chapman does ! It should be ready in August.
