About the Author

Henry Valentine Miller was born in New York City in 1891 and raised in Brooklyn. He lived in Europe, particularly Paris, Berlin, the south of France, and Greece; in New York; and in Beverly Glen, Big Sur, and Pacific Palisades, California where he died in 1980. He is also the author, among many other works, of Tropic of Capricorn, the Rosy Crucifixion trilogy (Sexus, Plexus, Nexus), and The Air-Conditioned Nightmare.

Reviews

"There is an eager vitality and exuberance to the writing which is exhilarating; a rush of spirit into the world as though all the sparkling wines have been uncorked at once; we watchfully hear the language skip, whoop and wheel across Miller's page." --William H. Gass, The New York Times Book Review

"Here is a book which, if such a thing were possible, might restore our appetite for the fundamental realities." --Anais Nin

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

"One of the most remarkable, most truly original authors of this or any age." -Saturday Review

"Undeniably salacious but nevertheless serious and important literature, Miller's novel with its ribald sexuality still provokes (and makes feminist hairs stand on end.)" --Victoria A. Brownworth, The Baltimore Sun
