I love to read Henry Miller in my hometown, in the summertime. He's always bumming money from someone in a dancehall on the lower east side, slumming in Brooklyn, riding the subway from one dead-end job to another. His flights of fancy are mind-numbing and uplifting. And in Plexus (volume 2 of The Rosy Crucifixion trilogy) he finally seems to be getting down to business; vol 1 Sexus was scattershot, without a point. In vol 2 he's finally dialling into a worldview, loving only one woman, and beginning write some great entertaining chapters. Aside from Tropic of Cancer this is the best yet. Lucky I have a few more to go!
