Rage, Sex, and JazzI Spit on Your Graves by Vernon Sullivan

Summer 1946. During a family holiday by the sea, Boris Vian wrote a fasionable noir novel full of sex, violence and rage in just two weeks. His hero is Lee Anderson, a young mixed race man out to avenge the death of his black brother. I Spit on Your Graves by Vernon Sullivan, supposedly a black author, came out that autumn. Vian pretended to only be the translator of the work, in an act of cultural and literary blackface. The novel still challenges and provokes readers to this day.
