9780141399119: Sexus (Penguin Modern Classics)

Sexus is the first volume of the scandalous trilogy The Rosy Crucifixion, Henry Miller's major life work

Henry Miller called the end of his life in America and the start of a new, bohemian existence in 1930s Paris his 'rosy crucifixion'. His searing fictionalized autobiography of this time of liberation was banned for nearly twenty years. Sexus, the first volume in The Rosy Crucifixion trilogy, looks back to his early sexual escapades in Brooklyn, and his growing infatuation with the playful, teasing dance hall hostess who will become the great obsession of his life.

Product Description:

The first novel in the autobiographical Rosy Crucifixion trilogy, Sexus depicts Miller's first stormy marriage and his sexual escapades in New York City with the mysterious dance hall hostess Mona. Published in 1949 in Paris, this picaresque tale was banned in the US and the UK for two decades. Funny and shocking, erotic and philosophical, the trilogy tells, according to Miller, 'the story of the most tragic suffering any man had endured'.

Review:

Praise for Henry Miller:

‘American literature begins and ends with the meaning of what Miller has done.’ Lawrence Durrell

‘I regard Henry Miller as a master.’ Colin MacInne

Praise for ‘Sexus’:

‘A huge, sprawling narrative of Miller's life in New York, “Sexus'”culminates in a description of an orgy as remarkable for its account of the author's powers of sexual endurance as for its versatility. Interspersed are descriptions of his friends, some of them extremely funny and all of them lively. The lack of inhibition and genteel or moral restraint with which Miller describes these various characters gives “Sexus” a unique vitality. Miler cannot be pompous, a rare virtue, and his honesty is absolute.’ Spectator
