"In this candid reflection of his well-spent life, Henry Miller speaks out frankly, fearlessly, and with a high sense of the human comedy. Here are scenes from his true life escapades in Brooklyn, Paris, and Big Sur, California. Miller is a story teller 'par excellence.' He reveals anectdotes about himself and his friends as well as shocking and tender memories of his childhood.
But most of all this is a book of Miller's thoughts on life and the day-to-day living of it. It is a visual autobiography, that reveals in nostalgic photographs more than 70 years of Millers' zestful life. The pictures succeed in showing how fruitful such a life can be.
All writers, and would-be writers, will be fascinated by the original outlines and manuscripts of his works reproduced herein. Here is his plan for a major unpublished work on D.H. Lawrence and for the first time, here are pages from his Paris notebook, reproduced in facsimile.
Another dimension of Millers' prodigious talent is painting. A self-taught water colorist and etcher, his works in these mediums have been widely exhibited. Twenty of his sensitive and symbolic paintings are reproduced here in full color."
