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.

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
