An evocation of Miller's early life in New York, this novel recalls his Brooklyn childhood, his job in his father's tailor shop and his searing reflections on his native land and his later self-imposed exile in Paris. The author also wrote "Tropic of Cancer" and "Tropic of Capricorn".

Review:

'American literature today begins and ends with the meaning of what Miller has done.' --Lawrence Durrell

'I like Henry Miller. I think he's the greatest American writer' --Bob Dylan

'There is nothing like Henry Miller when he gets rolling... One has to take the English language back to Marlowe and Shakespeare before encountering a wealth of imagery equal in intensity... a wildwater of prose, a cataract, a volcano, a torrent, an earthquake... a writer finally like a great athlete, a phenomenon of an avatar of literary energy.' --Norman Mailer

About the Author:

Henry Miller was born in Brooklyn, New York. He had a variety of jobs as a young man, including several years working for the Western Union Telegraph Company. During this time, encouraged by June Mansfield Smith, the second of his five wives, Miller began to write. Aside from articles, stories for pulp magazines and prose poems, Miller worked on his first novels ‘Crazy Cock’ and ‘Moloch’, and on the copious notes which would eventually transmute into the notorious ‘Tropics’ books.

Book Description St. Albans, Panther Books / Granada Publishing., 1974. 11 x 17.5cm. 206 pages. Original softcover. Very good condition with minor signs of wear, including mild foxing. From the library of swiss - american - irish poet Chuck Kruger. [A Panther Book]. Continuing the subversive self-revelation begun in Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, Henry Miller takes readers along a mad, free-associating journey from the damp grime of his Brooklyn youth to the sun-splashed cafes and squalid flats of Paris. With incomparable glee, Miller shifts effortlessly from Virgil to venereal disease, from Rabelais to Roquefort. In this seductive technicolour swirl of Paris and New York, he captures like no one else the blending of people and the cities they inhabit. [Grove Press]. Seller Inventory # 91539AB
