There's only one Henry Miller.

This book ties into the same energy I've felt listening to Bob Dylan. It touches that frustration with life that everybody must surely have felt at one time or another if their honest with themselves.

I enjoyed Tropic of Cancer much more, but I still enjoyed the rants. His obsession with astrology is curious.
