Description

'I have no money, no resources, no hopes. I am the happiest man alive' Henry Miller's blazing first novel follows a young American writer as he makes his way through 1930s bohemian Paris, encountering penniless artists, pimps, 'prostitutes like wilted flowers', princesses, drunks, hustlers and sexual adventurers. Banned as pornographic and the subject of several obscenity trials, Tropic of Cancer defied the conventions of its day and of language itself- a verbally dazzling, carnivalesque hymn to freedom and being alive that remade the modern novel. 'A revolution in consciousness equal to The Sun Also Rises.' Norman Mailer ''He knows all about me,' you feel; 'he wrote this specially for me'.' George Orwell

Author Biography

Henry Miller (1891-1980) is one of the most important American writers of the 20th century. His best-known novels include Tropic of Cancer (1934), Tropic of Capricorn (1939), and the Rosy Crucifixion trilogy (Sexus, 1949, Plexus, 1953, and Nexus, 1959), all published in France and banned in the US and the UK until 1964. He is widely recognised as an irreverent, risk-taking writer who redefined the novel and made the link between the European avant-garde and the American Beat generation.
