Henry Miller, the Paris years
His years in Paris (1930-39) were the making of Henry Miller. Hearrived with no money, no fixed address, and no prospects. He left as therenowned if notorious author of Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. Miller didn't just live in Paris, he devoured it, especially thelurid backalleys and shabby-chic dens of iniquity. It was a world he shared withBrassa*,whose work, first collected in Paris by Night, established him as one ofthegreatest photographers of the twentieth century and the most exquisite and perceptive chronicler of Parisian vice. In Miller, Brassa* found his most compelling subject. Usingunpublishedletters, recollected conversations, and references to Miller's work-andfeaturing sixteen unforgettable examples of Brassa*'s photography-HenryMiller:The Paris Years is an intimate account of a writer's self-discovery, seenthrough the unblinking eye of a master photographer. Brassa* delves intoMiller's relationships with Ana*s Nin and Lawrence Durrell, as well as his hopelessly tangled though wildly inspiring marriage to June. Most of all,Brassa* evokes their shared passion for the street life of the City ofLight,captured in a dazzling moment of illumination.
