I would give it 5 stars if Nin's letters had also been included. It would be a much fatter book that way, but I would carry it around in a little red wagon.

Anaïs Nin...
"Um homem jamais pode entender o tipo de solidão que uma mulher experimenta. Um homem se deita sobre o útero da mulher apenas para se fortalecer, ele se nutre desta fusão, se ergue e vai ao mundo, a seu trabalho, a sua batalha, sua arte. Ele não é solitário. Ele é ocupado. A memória de nadar no líquido aminótico lhe dá energia, completude. A mulher pode ser ocupada também, mas ela se sente vazia. Sensualidade para ela não é apenas uma onda de prazer em que ela se banhou, uma carga

Parecendo obra do acaso, este livro chega às minhas mãos no momento exacto. Emprestado, a mulher que mo emprestou pareceu perceber perfeitamente que seria aquele o momento ideal para le-lo. Dei-lhe crédito a aceitei a sugestão. Larguei o Carlos Ruiz Záfon e acolhi o Henry Miller durante várias semanas. O que encontrei foram espelhos. Palavras que mexeram comigo, no mais intimo de mim e que me moveram, fizeram pensar, reflectir e mesmo escrever.
Há passagens maravilhosa, daquelas que se repete vár

Je n'ai pas beaucoup aimé. Henry Miller semble beaucoup moins passionné par Anaïs Nin que l'inverse. En fait, il a trois occupations, réclamer de l'argent à son entourage pour voyager, allé dans les cafés et, Anaïs Nin. Il y a quelques descriptions par-çi, par-là, des lieux qu'il visite. Malheureusement, il ne semble aimé rien d'autre que Paris. C'est terne et sans vie.

Amazing. As anything by Henry Miller is. The letter to Anais Nin on her 36th birthday is a highlight.

Henry Miller sought to reestablish the freedom to live without the conventional restraints of civilization. His books are potpourris of sexual description, quasi-philosophical speculation, reflection on literature and society, surrealistic imaginings, and autobiographical incident.

After living in Paris in the 1930s, he returned to the United States and settled in Big Sur, Calif. Miller's first tw
