9780061477898: Tropic of Cancer

Miller's groundbreaking first novel, banned in Britain for almost thirty years, now reinvigorated in a new Perennial Modern Classics edition. A penniless and as yet unpublished writer, Henry Miller arrived in Paris in 1930. Leaving behind a disintegrating marriage and an unhappy career in America, he threw himself into the low-life of bohemian Paris with unwavering gusto. A fictional account of Miller's adventures amongst the prostitutes and pimps, the penniless painters and writers of Montparnasse, Tropic of Cancer is an extravagant and rhapsodic hymn to a world of unrivalled eroticism and freedom. Tropic of Cancer's 1934 publication in France was hailed by Samuel Beckett as 'a momentous event in the history of modern writing'. The novel was subsequently banned in the UK and the USA and not released for publication for a further thirty years.

Product Description:

The classic, candid, and often shocking novel of ex-pat Paris in the 1930s has spoken to many generations of readers while also being part of the literary underground for nearly three decades, remaining unpublished in the United States until 1961. It is presented in a quality, affordable new paperback edition from Quaint Press. This edition retains breaks within chapters from the original (when collapsed in generic reprints, the author's intended transitions and timeline are...

Review:

‘A ranting, randy book carried along by a deep, sensual enjoyment of living.’ Sunday Times

‘Tropic of Cancer is a great prophetic book, a warning of what deadens life, an affirmation that it can yet be lived in an age whose sterile non-cultures seek to thwart all mainsprings of fertility. Miller reveals himself as a battered faun, a crafty innocent, a lonely, lazy, sometimes fearful, always steadfast, worshipper of life’ Spectator

Book Description CAEDMON, United States, 2008. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Unabridged. 152 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New. Now hailed as an American classic, Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller s masterpiece, was banned as obscene in this country for twenty-seven years after its first publication in Paris in 1943. Only a historic court ruling that changed American censorship standards, ushering in a new era of freedom and frankness in modern literature, permitted the publication of this first volume of Miller s famed mixture of memoir and fiction, which chronicles with unapologetic gusto, the bawdy adventures of a young expatriate writer, his friends, and the characters they meet in Paris in the 1930s. Tropic of Cancer is now considered, as Norman Mailer said, one of the ten or twenty great novels of our century. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780061477898
