“In 1934 the city of Paris saw the birth of a book, published in English, which achieved instantaneous notoriety. Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer unfolded the adventures of a loquacious, free-wheeling, appallingly uninhibited American expatriate. But the rollicking eloquence, determined gusto, and explosive imagery of this modern Rabelais barely concealed the figure of a lonely American writer, thoroughly immersed in a legendary American situation.”—from the Introduction
