Continuing the subversive self-revelation begun in Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, Henry Miller takes readers along on a mad, free-associating journey from the damp grime of his Brooklyn youth to the sun-splashed cafes and squalid flats of Paris. With incomparable glee, Miller shifts effortlessly from Virgil to venereal disease, from Rabelais to Roquefort. In this seductive technicolor swirl of Paris and New York, he captures like no one else the blending of people and the cities they inhabit.

"Just before the outbreak of World War Two the writer Henry Miller, who had been living in Paris after the publication of Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, took a boat to Greece in the heat of summer to meet his friend Lawrence Durrell. The rebirth he experienced there inspired one of the great travel books of our times. Miller later described his exploration of the ancient places of Athens, the islands, Crete and the Peloponnese as the high water mark in lifes adventures thus far. With a poetic imagination and passionate prose, he captures the elemental splendour of the country and paints vivid portraits of people he meets, including an extraordinary storyteller he names the Colossus. Rooted firmly in a particular time yet still fresh and vital, the book is also an unrestrained meditation on life, to be read and savoured."--Provided by publisher.

Plexus by Henry Miller ( Book )
113 editions published between 1952 and 2009 in 18 languages and held by 759 libraries worldwide
" "Plexus is the core volume in The Rosy Crucifixion: the volume which has the most complete description of Henry Miller's basic values, beliefs, opinions, judgments, both at the time of his 'Crucifixion' and at the later time when the trilogy was written. Plexus is simply the most marvelous volume of emotions and ideas and visions and nightmares about man and society in the twentieth century -- with art as the link perhaps, or as the soul's refuge -- that I have read in many a long year. There is absolutely no subject in the world that Henry Miller does not seem to know about, want to talk about, and to evaluate with the deep authority of wisdom. He is probably the most learned of all our American writers, the most open to ideas and feelings, and yes, the most worshipful of all the aspects of life, as well as the most critical literary spokesman of our time." -- Maxwell Geismar." -- Publisher description.

'Undoubtedly,' he says in his explanatory epilogue, 'it is the strangest story I have yet written'."--P.  of cover.
