Editorial Reviews


Katy Masuga seamlessly weaves high brow literary theory with laugh-out-loud, casual Millerian prose, that only a real Miller fan could concoct. Both scholarly and broadly accessible, Henry Miller and How He Got That Way is an indispensable read for anyone interested in the real meaning of the words and connections behind the stories of one of the twentieth century's most underestimated and poorly understood writers.

(Jim Haynes, Founder of the Traverse Theatre)

Books may be, as Miller said, "as much a part of life as trees, stars or dung," but he also said 90% of them "could be thrown on the junk heap." As for the 10% which contributed to the often overlooked intelligence of his seemingly pornographic, idiosyncratic prose, Katy Masuga's much-needed study discretely shows why, and how, with suggestive attention to the writer writing about writing itself.

(Herbert Blau, Byron W. and Alice L. Lockwood Professor of the Humanities University of Washington)
