About this product
- DescriptionIn The World of Sex, Henry Miller, one of the most scandalous writers of the 20th century explains his literary project Henry Miller's bold, explicit vels scandalized readers and remade the literature of his day. In this uncompromising literary manifesto he argues that sex is at the heart of his writing because it is at the heart of life - a vital force as essential as bread, money, work or play. Drawing on his own experiences and on the writing of his famously banned vels in Paris, he shows sex as a mysterious realm that must be explored if we are to be truly free.
- Author BiographyHenry Miller (1891-1980) is one of the most important American writers of the 20th century.
