Book Description The John Day Company, New York, 1956. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: About Very Good. First Edition, First Printing. A biography of perhaps America's most infamous writer, author of "Tropic of Cancer," "Tropic of Capricorn," "The World of Sex," and numerous other works outlawed for years in England and the U.S., by a fellow writer and friend who knew Miller in Paris in the 1930s during the early years of Miller's career. Although Perles later spent a half-year with Miller in Big Sur to enable him to write about Miller's life after World War II, it is the decade of the Thirties, in Paris when it was the capital of the artistic world, that this book is all about. It is "a precise and humerous description of an unusual man who wrote unusual books during an unusual time." 255 pages, with a preface by Miller and including an index and a bibliography of Miller's work in all languages. Boards are worn at the spine ends and corners with a quarter-inch tear at the top of the spine. The text block shows some soiling on the top edge and a single dogeared page (125-126), o/w boards and text are clean and unmarked, tight and square, not remaindered. The dustjacket is worn but about 98% whole. Its spine is sun-faded and there are numerous small tears and chips along the edges but nothing of the dj's design or lettering is missing. It is not price-clipped and now enclosed in a Brodart protector. Bookseller Inventory # 005033
