Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

No punches are pulled in Henry Miller's most famous work. Still pretty rough going for even our jaded sensibilities, but Tropic of Cancer is an unforgettable novel of self-confession. Maybe the most honest book ever written, this autobiographical fiction about Miller's life as an expatriate American in Paris was deemed obscene and banned from publication in this country for years. When you read this, you see immediately how much modern writers owe Miller.

Review

“There is an eager vitality and exuberance to the writing which is exhilarating; a rush of spirit into the world as though all the sparkling wines have been uncorked at once; we watchfully hear the language skip, whoop and wheel across Miller’s page.” —William H. Gass, The New York Times Book Review

“Here is a book which, if such a thing were possible, might restore our appetite for the fundamental realities.” —Anais Nin

“American literature today begins and ends with the meaning of what Miller has done.” –Lawrence Durrell

“One of the most remarkable, most truly original authors of this or any age.” –Saturday Review

“Undeniably salacious but nevertheless serious and important literature, Miller’s novel with its ribald sexuality still provokes (and makes feminist hairs stand on end.)” —Victoria A. Brownworth, The Baltimore Sun
