9780002151726: The Happiest Man Alive: Biography of Henry Miller

Henry Miller was perhaps the most notorious and controversial writer of this century. His novels had been acclaimed for bringing a new, liberating frankness to writing about sexuality, and condemned as misogynistic pornography. Born in New York in 1891, to a rigidly conventional German-American family, Henry left America for Paris in 1930. It was there that he wrote "Tropic of Cancer", "Tropic of Capricorn" anmd "Black Spring". This book tells his story.
