Tropic of Cancer, Henry Miller’s masterpiece, was banned as obscene in the USA for twenty-seven years after its first publication in Paris in 1934. 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, which chronicles with unapologetic gusto the bawdy adventures of a young expatriate writer, his friends, and the characters they meet in Paris in the 1930s. Early US reprint edition, no other date than 1961. With Intro by Karl Shapiro, and Preface by Anais Nin
