From the Back Cover:

'The Rosy Crucifixion may be Miller's masterpiece. It is an extended account of Miller's efforts to become a writer and relates his struggles, financial and spiritual, in detail. At the same time, it recreates the tone and texture of Miller's environment, and brings alive his varied cronies. Written in a relaxed, naturalistic American prose, the book is at times uproariously funny, especially when Miller pokes fun at himself.

About the Author:

Henry Miller was born in 1891 in Brooklyn, New York but he soon moved to Paris. His first book 'Tropic of Cancer was published in 1934. It was followed five years later by its sister volume 'Tropic of Capricorn'. In 1940, Miller returned to the US where he wrote the 'Rosy Crucifixion' trilogy which received great praise from the likes of Eliot, Pound and Beckett. Outside of France, however it was universally banned due to its sexually explicit and candid nature and was not published until 1963. Miller died in 1980.
