Publisher's Summary

Banned in America for almost 30 years because of its explicit sexual content, this companion volume to Miller's Tropic of Cancer chronicles his life in 1920s New York City. Famous for its frank portrayal of life in Brooklyn's ethnic neighborhoods and Miller's outrageous sexual expolits, Tropic of Capricorn is now considered a cornerstone of modern literature.

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.

Shades of Cancer - not as much fun

Would you listen to Tropic of Capricorn again? Why?

Yes, as I enjoy Miller's work and Campbell Scott's narration

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tropic of Capricorn?

The descriptions of working for the cable company - hilarious. Discovering that he and a friend accidentally killed another kid when they were young was mindblowing!

Which character – as performed by Campbell Scott – was your favorite?

Henry Miller

If you could rename Tropic of Capricorn, what would you call it?

Pretending to be normal, failing miserably, objective achieved.

Any additional comments?

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