They are taken from the Paris booksBlack Spring (1936) andMax and the White Phagocytes (1938) and were for the most part, written at about the satire time asTropic of Capricorn--the period of Miller's and Durrell's life in the famous Villa Seurat in Paris. As is usual with Miller, these pieces cannot be tagged with the label of any given literary category. The unforgettable portrait of Max, the Paris drifter, and the probably-autobiographicalTailor Shop, are basically short stories, but even here the irrepressible vitality of Miller's personality keeps breaking into the narrative. And in the critical and philosophical essays, the prose poems and surrealist fantasies, the travel sketches and scenarios, Miller's passion for fiction, for telling the endless story of his extraordinary life, cannot be held down. Life, as no other modern author has lived it or can write it, bursts from these pages--the life of the mind and the body; of people, places and things; of ideas and the imagination.… (mais)

During those purgatorial years when Miller's works were being chewed fine by the various courts in various countries, the several New Directions volumes were about the only way the general reader could find-out who or what he was, independent of all the philistine flap-doodle. This collection of essays and sketches was my first introduction to him and, half a century later, remains a fundamental part not merely of my adult understanding of his work, but of many other things as well. And all this with hardly any of his hilarious high-intensity sexual stuff! The essays on film are particularly vivid, paradoxically almost more so than the original films themselves. For those who like their Miller in this format, this is the primo collection, after which I would nominate his STAND STILL LIKE THE HUMMINGBIRD. Ideally, these salad-bar volumes will prepare the newcomer for the real feast which is his rambling, outrageous, and self-indulgent novels like the TROPICs, and SEXUS. ( )
