Publisher: Arcade Publishing, New York
Publication Date: 1995
Edition: First Printing of the First Edition
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. Miller lived in Paris from 1930 to 1939 and during this period he went from a "middle-aged vagrant" to one of the most renowned and notorious authors who would jolt a generation with two seminal works--Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. While in Paris he met and became a close friend of Brassai who he quickly sensed was a kindred spirit and thus was born a life-long friendship that Brassai here documents from unpublished letters, recollected conversations and references to Miller's writings. This is Brassai's intimate account of Miller's self-discovery and coming of age as a writer and thinker. Bookseller Inventory # 23258
