Tropic of capricon Miller Henry
Жанр: Билингвы и книги на иностранных языках
A riotous and explosive mixture of joys and frustrations, Tropic of Capricorn chronicles Millers early life in New York, from his repressive Brooklyn childhood spent amongst a galaxy of screwballs to frantic, hilarious years of dead-end jobs and innumerable erotic adventures. The controversial, erotic and hilarious companion to the legendary Tropic of Cancer, in a smart new Harper Perennial Modern Classics edition. The publication of Tropic of Capricorn and its sister-volume Tropic of Cancer in Paris in the 1930s was hailed by Samuel Beckett as a momentous event in the history of modern writing. Irreverent and ironic, Tropic of Capricorn is both a comic portrait of the irrepressible Miller himself and a scathing attack on respectable America, the very foundations of which he hoped to shatter. The books were subsequently banned in the UK and the USA for nearly thirty years.
