Item description for Trópico de Cáncer (Punto De Lectura, 404/1) by Henry Miller...

This unforgettable novel of self-confession is a famed mixture of memoir and fiction, which chronicles with unapologetic enjoyment the lewd adventures of a young expatriate writer, his friends, and the characters they meet in Paris in the 1930s. Now hailed as an American classic, this masterpiece was banned as obscene in the US for 27 years after its publication in Paris in 1934.

Description in Spanish:

Publicada en Francia en 1934 y prohibida en Estados Unidos hasta 1962, Trpico de Cncer, primera novela de Henry Miller, nos transporta al Pars de enterguerras. Escrita en clave autobiogrfica y partiendo del convencimiento de que la razn nos est llevando a la catstrofe, Miller propone una emancipacin del cuerpo a travs de la filosofa de la inmediatez, del placer y del erotismo, del abandono, la irresponsabilidad y otros contravalores sociales. Desvergonzado e insaciable al enfrentar el sexo -casi siempre torrencial y azaroso-, y vehemente cuando se trata de cultivar sus pasiones - amistad, amor, lealtad-, Miller hace sentir descarnadamente el carcter ftil y contradictorio de la existencia humana. Su novela dinamit los credos y convenciones de la poca, provocando un escndalo que durante dcadas vel su calidad de clsico, hoy unnimemente reconocida.
