*************** Shouldn't take long to finish the Vian! It's a short book. Like Hallas's YOU PLAY THE BLACK AND THE RED COMES UP, there's a strong belief that it was written with tongue in cheek.

Vian took a lot of grief over I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. Although it saw print, it was banned everywhere. He wrote it using a pseudonym, and he was heavily fined when the courts found out he wrote it. He died while watching the filming of the movie adaptation.
