In , Vian and his brothers joined a jazz orchestra under the direction of Claude Abbadie, who became a minor character in Vian's Vercoquin et le plancton.
By this time he was an accomplished jazz trumpeter, and in he wrote his first novel, Trouble dans les andains Turmoil in the Swaths. His literary career started in with his first publication, a poem, in the Hot Club de France bulletin.
The same year Vian's father died, murdered at home by burglars. In Vian completed Vercoquin et le plancton Vercoquin and the Plankton , a novel inspired partly by surprise-parties of his youth and partly by his job at the AFNOR which is heavily satirized in the novel.
The former, a tragic love story in which real world objects respond to the characters' emotions, is now regarded as Vian's masterpiece, but at the time of its publication it failed to attract any considerable attention. Frustrated by the commercial failure of his works, Vian vowed he could write a best-seller and wrote the hard-boiled novel I Spit on Your Graves J'irai cracher sur vos tombes in only 15 days.
The book was ascribed to a fictitious American writer, Vernon Sullivan, with Vian credited as translator. Vian persuaded his publisher friend Jean d'Halluin to publish the novel in Eventually the hoax became known and the book became one of the best-selling titles of that year. Vian wrote three more Vernon Sullivan novels from to The year marked a turning point in Vian's life: At one of the popular parties that he and Michelle hosted he made the acquaintance of Jean-Paul Sartre , Simone de Beauvoir and Albert Camus , became a regular in their literary circles and started regularly publishing various materials in Les Temps Modernes.
Ironically, Sartre and Michelle Vian commenced a relationship that would eventually destroy Vian's marriage. Despite his literary work becoming more important, Vian never left the jazz scene.
He became a regular contributor to various jazz-related magazines, and played trumpet at Le Tabou. Vian also formed his own choir, La petite chorale de Saint-Germain-des-Pieds [ sic ]. This was a much darker story than its predecessors, centering on a man who built a giant machine that could help him psychoanalyze his soul.
Like the previous two books, it did not sell well; Vian's financial situation had been steadily worsening since late , and he was forced to take up translation of English-language literature and articles in order to get by. Ursula and Boris married in He concentrated on a new field, song-writing and performing, and continued writing poetry.
Vian's songs were successful; in he embarked on his first tour as singer-songwriter. By , when he was working as art director for Philips , Vian was active in a wide variety of fields: song-writing, opera, screenplays and several more plays. His first album, Chansons possibles et impossibles Possible and Impossible Songs , was also recorded in He wrote the first French rock and roll songs with his friend Henri Salvador , who sang them under the nickname Henry Cording.
Still in , Vian decided to perform some of his songs on stage himself. He had been unhappy about the fact that French singer Marcel Mouloudji , who had interpreted " Le Deserteur " The Deserter on stage the year before, had not accepted the original lyrics because he thought that they would lead to the song being banned.
