About this title:
The best of Miller?s chapbooks bound into a single roaring volume.Resembling a musical sextet where no two instruments are the same, but all instruments blend to form a single sound, Henry Miller?s Sextet combines six jive-talkin?, fresh, and impromptu pieces of writing originally published as individual chapbooks by Capra Press: ?On Turning Eighty,? ?Reflections on the Death of Mishima,? ?First Impressions of Greece,? ?The Waters Reglitterized: The Subject of Water Colors in Some of its More Liquid Phases,? ?Reflections on The Maurizius Case: A Humble Appraisal of a Great Book,? and ?Mother, China and the World Beyond: A Dream in Which I Die and Find Myself in Devachan (Limbo) Where I Run into My Mother whom I Hated All My Life.?
Like your favorite band releasing a six-song EP to keep you salivating until its next full-length album, Sextet is a finger-snapping sample of Miller?s work with the blare of a clarion call, and lots of raucous humor and jazz.
About the Author: Henry Miller (1891?1980) was one of the most controversial American novelists during his lifetime. His book, The Tropic of Cancer, was banned in the some U.S. states before being overruled by the Supreme Court. New Directions publishes several of his books.

Store Description: Trilby & Co. Books is located in Northern California. The company was founded years ago by a Shetland Sheepdog named Trilby. Trilby's message to her family was brief and direct - the sale of books would increase disposable income and improve the quality of provisions in her food dish. My name is McTavish (picture at left). I am the current CEO of this company, and I approve of her message. Oh, by the way, my speciality is literature, with an emphasis on first editions and signed books.
