More About the Author

HENRY MILLER (1891-1980) was an American writer and painter infamous for breaking with existing literary forms and developing a new sort of "novel" that is a mixture of novel, autobiography, social criticism, philosophical reflection, surrealist free association, and mysticism, one that is distinctly always about and expressive of the real-life Henry Miller and yet is also fictional. His most characteristic works of this kind are "Tropic of Cancer," "Tropic of Capricorn," and "Black Spring." His books were banned in the United States for their lewd content until 1964 when a court ruling overturned this order, acknowledging Miller's work as literature in what became one of the most celebrated victories of the sexual revolution.

First, the 1 star is not because of the book itself. The Rosy Crucifixion is one of my favorite books of all time. I've read the trilogy many times, particularly Plexus. In fact, when I got my Kindle DX, this is the first book I purchased even though I have the individual volumes on my bookshelf. I wanted to have it with me where ever I went.

What a disappointment then to see the total lack of care that went into the proofing of this edition. We are not talking about the occasional typo. We are talking about misspellings, typos, punctuation errors on nearly every page, sometimes 4 or 5 to a page. It is unreal. Is this what I can expect from the "kindle" editions in the future? If so, I may have to think about another e-reader. For shame.

Format: Paperback
I don't even know if all three books were combined together before. The text quality from this publisher seems to be in decent shape, but Miller's second trilogy was over a million words, and things are a bit... scrunched.

Might be a good deal for a college student, but my eyes aren't quite what they used to be. The ebook helps a lot, 'cause you can enlarge the text on screen.

Otherwise, it's a chronicle of Henry Miller's final days in NY before he began his legendary trip to Paris, and that last goodbye, written when the author was past 60 still sings to me as perhaps no other scribe can

Three stars for the little letters; five for the books themselves.

Format: Paperback
Preparing to move abroad where Henry Miller is still banned, I thought I could save on shipping and some shelf space by purchasing the three volumes of "The Rosy Crucifixion" printed in this single edition. Unfortunately, the book is awkwardly over-sized and looks like a textbook. A cursory perusal found several typos. I ended up giving it away and shipping the separate volumes instead.

This is a great book but this edition is full of typographical errors.I was looking forward to having all three volumes in one book but I now wished I had purchased another edition.
