Hailed as a masterpiece, Tropic of Cancer is regarded as one of the most important American novels of the twentieth century. It chronicles the unforgettable, candidly sexual adventures of Henry Miller and his friends in Paris in the 1930s. The novel was banned in America from the time of its publication in 1934 until 1961, subsequently changing US censorship laws and paving the way for modern writers.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An unforgettable novel of self-confession. Maybe the most honest book ever written, this autobiographical fiction about Miller’s life as an expatriate American in Paris was deemed obscene and banned from publication in this country for years. When you read this, you see immediately how much modern writers owe Miller.”, editorial review

About the Author

Henry Miller (1891–1980) was born in New York City and raised in Brooklyn. He lived in Europe, particularly Paris, Berlin, the south of France, and Greece; in New York; and in Beverly Glen, Big Sur, and Pacific Palisades, California, where he died. He is also the author, among many other works, of Tropic of Capricorn, the Rosy Crucifixion trilogy (Sexus, Plexus, Nexus), and The Air-Conditioned Nightmare. Many of his novels, including Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, were banned in the United States until almost thirty years after their initial publication in France. The United States’ publication of Tropic of Cancer in 1961 sparked uproar that led to a number of obscenity trials. One of the early indications of how important Miller’s career would prove to be came in 1940, when George Orwell wrote an essay entitled Inside the Whale in which he praised Miller.
