Publisher's Summary

"That night I didn’t sleep a wink. It wasn’t the bedbugs that kept me awake, it was Europe, the horror and misery, which penetrated it through and through."

Henry Miller's Nexus was censored 50 years ago, while Miller and his publishers fought for freedom of speech. Nexus II was never published, and looks at his first trip to Paris and Europe in 1928, a world on the edge of the great depression. Paris 1928 collates these unpublished memoirs as Henry Miller wished, together with the censored pages from Nexus.

Not Cancer continued, but still Paris in the 20s..

If you're a huge fan of Tropic of Cancer like me, this unfortunately is not more of the same. More of a straight travel memoir. Enjoyable nonetheless, but if Cancer is five stars (I'd give it more if I could!), this is 3.

The pre-Cancerous Parisian Miller

In this rare Henry Miller book that I'd never heard of before, the just-arrived-inParis, ribald Miller introduces us to his wife, Mona, a fictional version of his wife, June, who waltzes him merrily and reluctantly around the continent. It's a typically mischievous Milleresque romp, culminating with a salacious and deliciously auditory climax of pornography, complete with insatiable nymphomaniacs, phalluses the size of fairy tales, manually-manipulated candles, over-reaching and willing anuses, and unlimited descriptions of sexual fluids. A must read for all fans of the famously-censored literary giant of sensuous fantasmagoria.
