    Drawing on previously unpublished eyewitness accounts, prizewinning historian Donald L. Miller has written what critics are calling one of the most powerful accounts of warfare ever published. Here are the horror and heroism of World War II in the words of the men who fought it, the journalists who covered it, and the civilians who were caught in its fury. Miller gives us an up-close, deeply personal view of a war that was more savagely fought - and whose outcome was in greater doubt - than one might imagine. This is the war that Americans on the home front would have read about had they had access to previously censored testimony.

    Now hailed as an American classic, Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller's masterpiece, was banned as obscene in this country for 27 years after its first publication in Paris in 1943. Only a historic court ruling that changed American censorship standards, ushering in a new era of freedom and frankness in modern literature, permitted the publication of this first volume of Miller's famed mixture of memoir and fiction.

    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.

    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 Paris 1928 collates these unpublished memoirs as Henry Miller wished, together with the censored pages from Nexus.

    Some of the most rewarding pages in Henry Miller's books concern his self-education as a writer. He tells, as few great writers ever have, how he set his goals, how he discovered the excitement of using words, how the books he read influenced him, and how he learned to draw on his own experience.

    Tropic of Cancer is regarded as a masterpiece, with Time magazine rating it as one of the 100 most important novels of the 20th century. It is an unforgettable, confessional, warts and all novel of the author and his friends riotous adventures in Paris during the Depression. It changed censorship laws in the US where it was published decades after it was written, and reading it today amplifies the debt that modern writers owe Miller.

    Nell'incantata, effervescente Parigi degli anni trenta, precisamente nel 1934, viene pubblicato da un piccolo editore un libro intitolato "Tropico del Cancro": sarà la miccia di uno scandalo morale e di un'insurrezione letteraria che attraverserà tutto il secolo. Negli ambienti più conservatori si parla di pornografia, nei caffè avanguardisti si inneggia alla rivoluzione.

    I sensi prima di tutto: con questo messaggio irruppe nella Parigi del 1939 "Tropico del Capricorno," a rinfocolare lo scandalo suscitato dal romanzo gemello "Tropico del Cancro." È sempre Henry Miller a parlarci con la sua inconfondibile voce, raccontando in prima persona i suoi anni spesi a vivere, scrivere, bere e godere la New York di inizio Novecento. Tutto è chiaro, tutto è narrato con una sincerità disarmante, che poco lascia all'illazione e tutto offre alla comprensione, alla percezione diretta.

    Tropic of Capricorn is the sequel to Tropic of Cancer but stands alone as a fascinating account of Miller's early life in 1920's New York. As with the other Tropic it is a landmark masterpiece that was also banned on grounds of obscenity in the US. Henry Miller is undoubtedly one of America's greatest writers of the twentieth century whose contribution to literature and free speech still remain relevant and fascinating.

    Henry Miller is undisputedly one of the most important American writers and Sexus like his other works was banned in English speaking countries for obscenity. It explores work, love and friendship and as with all his work is based on autobiographical experiences- in this book his passionate affair with a dance hall hostess in NY that is recounted in intimately graphic and vivid detail.

    "Questa è la sola storia vera che io abbia raccontato fino adesso," dice Miller nell'epilogo scritto per questo bellissimo racconto. Un'affermazione strana perché si tratta forse della sua unica storia di fantasia pura. Ma Miller chiarisce: "I miei personaggi sono tutti reali, presi dalla vita, dalla mia vita, mentre Augusto è l'unico che nasce dal regno della fantasia. Ma che cos'è questo regno della fantasia che ci circonda e assedia da ogni parte, se non la realtà stessa?".

    Un'autentica girandola di imprese orgiastico-amatorie, in una Parigi cosmopolita e peccaminosa. "Opus pistorum" fu scritto nel 1941 su istigazione dell'amico libraio Milton Luboviski, che voleva una serie di romanzi in cui si parlasse soltanto di sesso. Ne nacque questa storia senza trama, che ripropose con forza il "caso" Miller. Il titolo stesso del romanzo è chiaramente allusivo: "pistor" in latino significa "mugnaio" come "miller" in inglese; "opus", opera, di Miller dunque anche di chi pesta come in un mortaio (con l'evidente implicazione sessuale che l'espressione comporta).
