Description
In 1930 Henry Miller arrived in Paris with no money, no fixed address, and no prospects. He left nine years later as the renowned if notorious author of Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. As his friend, the great photographer Brassaï, tells it in this New York Times Notable Book, Miller didn't just live in Paris, he devoured it, especially the lurid back alleys and shabby-chic dens of iniquity. Using unpublished letters, recollected conversations, and references to Miller's work—as well as 15 of his own photographs—Brassaï renders this personal account of a writer's self-discovery, delving into Miller's relationships with Anaïs Nin and Lawrence Durrell, as well as his hopelessly tangled though wildly inspiring marriage with June Miller.

"In this memoir (originally published in France in 1975), the photographer Brassaï (who also photographed and wrote on Picasso) recounts events that later appear, often in exaggerated or distorted form, in Miller's work. Miller's experiences and relationships were all fodder for his fiction, and it is fascinating to see these incidents and characters observed with another eye, especially one as practiced as Brassaï's. He also presents a nonjudgmental interpretation of Miller's pornographic (and to some, misogynistic) moments. Brassaï was clearly fond of Miller, and this is not a critical work, but there is something intriguing about one artist commenting on the life of another."—Library Journal
