Review


Miller captures the spirit and warmth of the resilient Greek people in his story of a wartime journey from Athens to Crete. (National Geographic)

Miller's Colossus of Maroussi, a paean to Greece drawn out of a nine-month visit...is the gestation time for a human and, in Miller's case, for the imaginative re-creation of a country, a culture and his own fierce energies. (Richard Eder, The New York Times)

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.

Will Self is the acclaimed author of several novels, short story collections, and novellas. His books include Umbrella, Great Apes, and Phone.

Ian S. MacNiven (b. 1938) edited The Durrell-Miller Letters: 1935-1980.
