Description

Now hailed as an American classic, Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller’s masterpiece, was banned as obscene in this country for twenty-seven years after its first publication in Paris in 1934. Only a historic court ruling that changed American censorship standards, ushering in a new era of freedom and frankness in modern literature, permitted the publication of this first volume of Miller’s famed mixture of memoir and fiction, which chronicles with unapologetic gusto the bawdy adventures of a young expatriate writer, his friends, and the characters they meet in Paris in the 1930s. Tropic of Cancer is now considered, as Norman Mailer said, “one of the ten or twenty great novels of our century.”

Customer Reviews

Tropic of Cancer

Gritty immersion into pre-WWII American emigrant experience in France. Exploration of lust, authenticity, and camaraderie. One of the great books of modern literature.

Every page is sublime

And yet the book is an enigma - a tale that just keeps on talking, like a child who doesn't want to stop talking for fear that someone will stop him, the author just keeps on going. And yet every page is a wonder to read, the phrases seem to be implacable, and hard to place, yet they speak to a part of your soul.

Well worth the read!
