    Banned in America for almost 30 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 expolits, Tropic of Capricorn is now considered a cornerstone of modern literature.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who likes wordy, overly discriptive prose which goes off on tangents.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    War of the Worlds


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Tropic of Capricorn?

    I would take away the rambling, tangents he went of on


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the basic story had some interest however Miller rambles off on prose that I found redundant and boring. I found my mind wandering frequently through out these ramble and I would loss the flow of the story. Miller loves adjectives and adverbs way too much for me. I prefer a more direct story.

    The work tells the story of Jane's early life, her experience at Lowood School and as a governess. Her refusal to accept Rochester's love on any but her own strictly moral terms is a passionate cry for independence.

    Jane says: "Superb narration of a great romantic classic"
    "greatest story ever!!"
