Dan Yack is an eccentric English millionaire shipowner, a notorious hell-raiser, and the envy of all St Petersburg. He is also the alter ego of his creator, Blaise Cendrars. This strange travel yarn begins with Dan Yack fiding out that he is no longer wanted by his lover, Hedwiga. Rejection letter in hand, he is completely drunk and sitting in the middle of the street in a pool of horse's urine. Eventually he wanders in to 'The Stray Dog' nightclub to fall asleep under a table. Sitting around the table are three hard-up young artists drinking vodka.

Dan Yack is a lavish exercise in inheritance by the extremely entertaining author Blaise Cendrars. Cendrars, one alias of Frederic Sauser, could easily be Yack. He is an ebullient traveller whose life can hardly be extricated from his fiction

Dan Yack is a lavish exercise in inheritance by the extremely entertaining author Blaise Cendrars. He is an ebullient traveller whose life can hardly be extricated from his fiction. If you've ever read anything written about him, you might have some idea of the difficulty biographers face in dealing with this subject. Dan Yack is the well funded son of a shipping magnate, who decides to take his millions to Russia and spend his days drinking and spending.

Continuing the adventures of the eccentric English millionaire Dan Yack, this novel centers on tells the story of the protagonist's tender love for the young Mireille, whom he meets in a crowded tabac in a Paris gone mad on Armistice night, 1918. This love transforms Dan Yack's life-he abandons his women and gives up his fast cars and debauchery to marry this convent-educated girl of his dreams.

Frédéric-Louis Sauser (1 September 1887 – 21 January 1961), better known as Blaise Cendrars, was a Swiss-born novelist and poet who became a naturalized French citizen in 1916. He was a writer of considerable influence in the European modernist movement. He was born in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Neuchâtel, Switzerland, rue de la Paix 27, into a bourgeois francophone family, to a Swiss father and a Scottish mother. They sent young Frédéric to a German boarding school, but he ran away

Blaise Cendrars (1887–1961) was the pseudonym of Frédéric Sauser, the Swiss son of a French Anabaptist father and a Scottish mother.

Blaise Cendrars (1887–1961) was the pseudonym of Frédéric Sauser, the Swiss son of a French Anabaptist father and a Scottish mother. As a young man he traveled widely, from St. Petersburg to New York and beyond, and these wanderings proved the inspiration of much of his later poetry and prose. Settled in Paris in 1912, Cendrars published two long poems, Easter in New York and The Transsiberian, which made him a major figure in the poetic avant-garde. At the outset of World War I, he enlisted in the French Foreign Legion, losing an arm in the battle of the Marnes.

Blaise Cendrars (real name Frédéric Sauser) was born in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, in 1887. The following interview combines Cendrars’ reflections on his own work with reminiscences of the writers and artists whom he knew. His father, an, was Swiss, his mother Scottish. All writers complain of the constraint under which they work and of the difficulty of writing.

Centering on eccentric English millionaire shipowner, notorious hell-raiser, and the envy of all St Petersburg, Dan Yack, this strange travel yarn begins with the protagonist finding out that he is no longer wanted by his lover, Hedwiga. Rejection letter in hand, he eventually wanders into a nightclub to impulsively invite a handful of artists to accompany him on a world voyage via the Antarctic. As their journey progresses, the weather worsens and they enter pack-ice. Impatient, Dan orders the crew to land him and his three companions while they wait for a clear passage. They have enough provisions for a long, dark polar winter, but things do not run smoothly. The musician destroys their watches, the poet drifts off into serious daydreams, and the sculptor starts making statues of Dan Yack in ice. And Dan himself is worried—about time, about breaking his monocle, and about having no-one to love. But when the sun finally returns after the polar winter, no one could predict the surreal disaster that is about to unfold—a scenario involving a plum pudding, whales, women, and World War I.

Great authors and great books are monstrous, they elicit the horror and wonder of coming upon a strange beast on the same walk one takes every day. So to with Dan Yack. The fiction is a machine spurning delusions, daydreams and spirals of desire that run up to castles in the clouds and pits of lava in the depths. One is quite sure that you are in the hands of madman reading this, just as the characters IN the novel are quite obviously in the grips of one, Dan Yack. The novel takes you places geographically, but more so emotionally and in the imagination. It seems out of control at times and you are held on the tender edge of frustration and rapture, wondering what the author's going on about, knowing it's something, leading somewhere. Sometimes there is the taste of real life and sometimes it's the most ludicrous invention. You're not sure which impression you feel cheated by. And then it all comes together in a windfall of emotion that expresses clearly what's been pulsing beneath the surface the whole time--this is a work whose every word is impregnated with a deep, moral sense of what it is to be alive, and it risks everything to communicate that sense. And succeeds brilliantly. (Excuse the vague, emotional tone of this review. I'm sure others have hinted at what it's about in a more 'concrete sense. This is how it felt to me.)

Dan Yack is a lavish exercise in inheritance by the extremely entertaining author Blaise Cendrars. Cendrars, one alias of Frederic Sauser, could easily be Yack. He is an ebullient traveller whose life can hardly be extricated from his fiction. If you've ever read anything written about him, you might have some idea of the difficulty biographers face in dealing with this subject.

Dan Yack is the well funded son of a shipping magnate, who decides to take his millions to Russia and spend his days drinking and spending. While there, he wakes up under a table where three artists (a painter, a composer, and a sculpter) are lamenting over the sad state of he arts and how difficult it is to make money as an artist. He climbs out from under the table, where he had been inspecting their shoes, to right the ineffable wrongs that have been done to these gentlemen. After handing each of them a blank check, Yack urges them to meet in London in 6 months to depart for Antarctica, where they will spend a season gathering inspiration. The choice is theirs.

What follows is the tale of the three artists, Yack, and his dog going insane in the arctic winter. For anyone who has ever wondered why the rich never do anything truly entertaining with their money, for all the people who have pondered how big a plum pudding can get, and for all those who have dreamed of picking a place to live by firing a pistol at a globe, you have Dan Yack.

(Sorry for my poor english...)
If you liked the marvelous Moravagine, Dan Yack could be considerated in a way as is soft counterpart. When a group of depraved artits decide to follow an idle billionnaire to spend a winter near the south pole, anything can happen. And, of course, as we are in the Blaise Cendrars world, it happens in a brutal, hallucinating but touching way. Dan Yack plays with life like a gambler who would play russian roulette with a gun loaded with five bullets.
