Henry Miller’s first book, Tropic of Cancer, was published in Paris in 1934 and was immediately banned in all English-speaking countries. With its sequel, Tropic of Capricorn (1939), which actually covers an earlier period in Miller’s life, it makes up a running fictional autobiography remarkable for its candour, gusto, and completeness. The two books have in common a plain-spoken truthfulness, a good-hearted comedy, and a quality of joy discovered somewhere on the far side of despair, things that their author was seldom to match and never to surpass in later self-unravellings.

Sexually explicit, these books electrified the European literary avant-garde, received praise from Eliot, Pound, Beckett and Durrell, but were almost universally banned outside France. Miller returned to America in 1940, settling in Big Sur, California.

Tropic of Capricorn book. He pays homage to Dadaism and Surrealism, but not as influences so much as discoveries after-the-fact; discoveries of like-minds who he never knew existed until he was already like-minded. The narrative is dense, compacted, sometimes a single paragraph will extend over several pages,. and Cancer is separated from Capricorn only by an imaginary line.
