Summary

Tropic of Cancer is regarded as a masterpiece, with Time magazine rating it as one of the 100 most important novels of the 20th century.

It is an unforgettable, confessional, warts-and-all novel of the author and his friends riotous adventures in Paris during the Depression. It changed censorship laws in the US, where it was published decades after it was written, and reading it today amplifies the debt that modern writers owe Miller.

Ian McShane's rich and sexy voice provides the layers and depth to a compelling listening experience.

Poisonous

What is this? It seems to be The wet dream of a 15-year-old boy. It seems to lack anything a novel should have, really anything.
