Good question! I too would like to know this. Also how about Chester Himes? Were they friends or at least knew each other?

There's actually a great book on this topic by James Campbell titled "PAris Interzone" in the U.K. It has a slightly different title in the US but I can't remember.

Also read James Baldwin's 'The Devil Finds Work.' In the chapter 'Who Saw Him Die? I, Said the Fly' It deals mostly with Vian and I Spit on Your Graves
