If you're a huge fan of Tropic of Cancer like me, this unfortunately is not more of the same. More of a straight travel memoir. Enjoyable nonetheless, but if Cancer is five stars (I'd give it more if I could!), this is 3.
In this rare Henry Miller book that I'd never heard of before, the just-arrived-inParis, ribald Miller introduces us to his wife, Mona, a fictional version of his wife, June, who waltzes him merrily and reluctantly around the continent. It's a typically mischievous Milleresque romp, culminating with a salacious and deliciously auditory climax of pornography, complete with insatiable nymphomaniacs, phalluses the size of fairy tales, manually-manipulated candles, over-reaching and willing anuses, and unlimited descriptions of sexual fluids. A must read for all fans of the famously-censored literary giant of sensuous fantasmagoria.
