Tropic of Cancer

Introduction by Karl Shapiro. Preface by Anais Nin

Now hailed as an American classic, "Tropic of Cancer," Henry Miller's masterpiece, was banned as obscene in this country for twenty-seven years after its first publication in Paris in 1934. Only a historic court ruling that changed American censorship standards, ushering in a new era of freedom and frankness in modern literature, permitted the publication of this first volume of Miller's famed mixture of memoir and fiction, which chronicles with unapologetic gusto the bawdy adventures of a young expatriate writer, his friends, and the characters they meet in Paris in the 1930s. "Tropic of Cancer" is now considered, as Norman Mailer said, "one of the ten or twenty great novels of our century."

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"
