""Depuis le décès de mon "protecteur" Boris Vian, une coalition de requins a foutu un insidieux embargo sur mes pompes et mes oeuvres, sous prétexte, paraît-il, que j'écris "vach'tement compliqué" (sic)..., ça dérange, et surtout parce que je la ramène trop dans les studios quand ça tourne pas rond, à cause d'un souci de perfection dont le monde des avachis se cagne. Dans le Dictionnaire des crabes, "perfection" a été remplacé par "À la bonne franquette", monnaie courante..." Cet ouvrage est une chronique rétrospective que nous a laissée André Persiani, musicien français. Il nous offre un témoignage incomparable sur une tranche de l'histoire musicale, sociale et politique du XXe siècle. Écrit dans un style dont la gouaille et la causticité ne le cèdent en rien à la concision du propos, il retrace une sorte de cavalcade autobiographique et encyclopédique dans laquelle Rabelais, Michel Audiard, Pierre Dac et un critique de jazz seraient au coude à coude."--P. [4] of cover.

20. Night in Shanghai [2014]

Book
277 pages ; 24 cm
""Nicole Mones conjures up the jazz-filled, complex, turbulent world of Shanghai just before World War II. A rich and thoroughly captivating read."--Gail Tsukiyama, author of The Samurai's Garden Sailing to Shanghai in 1936 to lead a black jazz orchestra, Thomas Greene goes from being flat broke in segregated Baltimore to living in a mansion with servants of his own, and from the classical piano pieces he was trained to play to the toe-tapping swing of the big band era. Song Yuhua is refined, educated, and bonded since age eighteen to Shanghai's most powerful crime boss in payment for her father's gambling debts. Outwardly submissive, she burns with rage, longs for escape, and risks her life spying on her master for the Communist Party. With Shanghai shattered by the Japanese invasion, Thomas and Song find their way to each other and forge a bond from which neither can back down in the turbulent years that follow. Torn between music and survival, freedom and commitment, love and war, they navigate the dangers leading to world war until the moment when they must cast their lots in Night in Shanghai's final, impossible choice. "-- Provided by publisher.
