Miller's groundbreaking first novel, banned in Britain for almost thirty years. A penniless and as yet unpublished writer, Henry Miller arrived in Paris in 1930. Leaving behind a disintegrating marriage and an unhappy career in America, he threw himself into the low-life of bohemian Paris with unwavering gusto. A fictional account of Miller's adventures amongst the prostitutes and pimps, the penniless painters and writers of Montparnasse, Tropic of Cancer is an extravagant and rhapsodic hymn to a world of unrivalled eroticism and freedom. Tropic of Cancer's 1934 publication in France was hailed by Samuel Beckett as 'a momentous event in the history of modern writing'. The novel was subsequently banned in the UK and the USA and not released for publication for a further thirty years.

“Dirty and dizzy!”

A classic work of autobiographical fiction that meanders through the grotty sex industry and Bohemian artistic lifestyle of 1930s Paris. It is a little hard to keep track of the characters at times. There is no real... More

“Paradoxical”

I struggled significantly with this book. Though it was a mere 240 pages long, it felt like 640. The language is quite dense at times and it doesn’t run with any real narrative or sense of character (outside of our... More
