Boris Vian's Heartsnatcher Illustration


Here is an illustration of the L'Arrache-coeur (Heartsnatcher), a novel from Boris Vian.

Boris Vian was a French writer and musician among many other things. His writings include famous books like L'Écume des jours (Foam of the Daze/ Froth on the Daydream/ Mood Indigo), L'automne à Pékin (Autumn in Peking). He lived from 1920-1959 and the Heartsnatcher was his last novel edited, in 1953.

On this book, a story of several sick relationships is told in a very visual and surrealistic way. Boris Vian points out, in a corrosive way, how unbalanced and fragile human relations can be.

On that principle - and regarding this specific part of the book taken from chapter XVII - I illustrated this theme thinking that flowers need sun, water and air to grow, not soil to confine them and a flood of water to rotten their roots.
