Drawing on previously unpublished materials plus interviews with Miller's friends and associates, Dearborn provides the definitive biography of this important literary figure who came into the limelight in 1934, when his Tropic of Cancer was widely banned for its sexual passages. Miller became a symbol for the sexual revolution when the novel was finally published in the U.S. in 1961. 16-page photo insert.
