Lee Anderson, black but white in appearance, decides to avenge his brother's death at the hands of white racists. With obsessive meticulousness, he plots and carries on and overwhelming plan of physical and sexual violence. Published in 1946 under a pseudonym, "I will spit on your grave" was deeply irritating to French society and, in 1948, it was banned for "outrage on morality and good manners". Violent and pornographic, Vian's novel seeks to hurt the sensibility of the reader to give greater virulence to his anti-racist allegation. A crazy and fast reading.
