"Auch in diesem inzwischen weltberühmten und verfilmten Buch zeigt sich der unsterbliche Henry Miller als Prophet und Moralist. Jahrelang mußte er auf die Vercffentlichung warten. Denn 'Stille Tage in Clichy' ist nicht, wie der Titel vermuten lassen könnte, eine Idylle im Werk des 'obszönsten Schriftstellers der Weltliteratur' (Sir Herbert Read). Doch sei es, daß sich sein Erzähler Joey dem Mädchen Nys nähert, das er im Café trifft, sei es Mara-Marignan, die sich auf den Champs-Élysées nach ihm umdreht: Joeys Abenteuer sind von erstaunlicher Heiterkeit. Ganz gleich, ob eine Mutter unter dem Gekreisch ihrer Kinder entblößt wird oder ob Joey mit zwei Dirnen in der Badewanne Brot und Wein zu sich nimmt, fast immer sind seine Handlungen von Gelächter begleitet, gehen unter in wilder Ausgelassenheit. Zugleich beschwört Henry Miller das Paris der dreißiger Jahre und seine Atmosphäre überschäumender Lebenslust"--Amazon.de
Lachen, Liebe, Nächte : sechs Erzählungen by Henry Miller ( Book )
11 editions published between 1957 and 1970 in German and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Plexus by Henry Miller ( Book )
10 editions published between 1955 and 2007 in German and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member 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
