TamTam Books News

Here is some recent TamTam Books news!

“Boris Vian’s “Autumn in Peking” will be available at various local independent bookstores very shortly. Also you can purchase copies of that book as well as other TamTam titles at:

Book Soup (www.booksoup.com)- can get that right now.
Dutton’s Books in Brentwood (http://www.duttonsbrentwood.com/) by the end of the week
Dutton’s Books in Beverly Hills (http://www.duttonsbeverlyhills.com/) by the end of the week
The Bookbeat (http://www.thebookbeat.com/index.htm) by the end of the week

I sent a huge shipment to Amazon.com and they will be getting it by the end of the week as well. You can now pre-order the book at Amazon as well as the above stores. Independent bookstores can also order their titles at Ingram (as well as my other TamTam titles).

The other big news is that Bookforum (the February/March issue) is doing an excerpt of a book we (Rizzoli and I) have been working on for a while now: “Boris Vian’s Manual of Saint-Germain-des-Prés.” They published a seductive taster of the ultra-cool and beautiful Georges Dudognon photos that are in the book as well as the brilliant translation of Vian's text by Paul Knobloch – who also translated “Autumn in Peking.”

What’s fascinating about this book is that the text is by Vian, and it fully expresses his social and artistic scene of the time - 1949 Paris. It is full of remarkable unknown characters (to us at least) and the very- famous bohemian/movie stars/literary giants/jazz greats of that and all time! Totally fab!

So pick up “Autumn in Peking” at your favorite store – and read the excerpt of “Boris Vian’s Manual of Saint-Germain-des-Prés” in the latest issue of Bookforum.
