Author(s): Henry Miller
Banned in America for almost thirty years because of its explicit sexual content, this companion volume to Miller's "Tropic of Cancer" chronicles his life in 1920s New York City. Famous for its frank portrayal of life in Brooklyn's ethnic neighborhoods and Miller's outrageous sexual exploits, "The Tropic of Capricorn" is now considered a cornerstone of modern literature.
Henry Valentine Miller was born in 1891 in New York City and spent most of his life in Brooklyn, Paris, and Big Sur, California. His books include Tropic of Cancer, Tropic of Capricorn, the Rosy Crucifixion trilogy (Sexus, Plexus, and Nexus), Black Spring, and Crazy Cock. He died in 1980.
