From the Publisher
One of Miller's more risqué (and at one time, banned) works. Thoroughly edited and extensively annotated. Includes a section of photographs related to Henry Miller and his work. Lavishly produced on natural, high-quality paper, and affordably priced.
From the Back Cover
Written in 1940 but banned from publication until 1967, 'Quiet Days in Clichy' is Miller’s classic fictional account of his early life in Paris in the 1920s, an extravagant record of the time which inspired his great ‘Tropic’ novels. A Rabelaisian chronicle of his frantic pursuit of sex, freedom, money and food in the bars and cafes of Clinchy and Montmartre, where ‘the whores fluttered about in the dim light like perfumed fireflies’, 'Quiet Days in Clichy’' is vintage Miller – reckless, sprawling, disarmingly honest and marvellously exuberant.
“Full of zest and extravagance”
“Henry Miller pressed all America’s buttons: open sexuality, the failure to believe in Progress, the courage to explode all things and let his own courageous vision thrust through.”
“In rejecting conversation, a safe livelihood, the prison bars of dailiness, Miller has broken through to an exuberant joy.”
Many of Henry Miller’s words are available in Flamingo, including 'Tropic of Cancer' and 'Tropic of Capricorn.'
