Henry Miller’s Nexus was censored fifty years ago, while Miller and his publishers fought for freedom of speech. Nexus II was never published, and relooks at his first trip to Paris and Europe in 1928, a world on the edge of the great depression. “That night I didn’t sleep a wink. It wasn’t the bedbugs that kept me awake, it was Europe, the horror and misery, which penetrated it through and through.” This volume collates these unpublished memoirs as Henry Miller wished, showing his troubled relationship with June, what might be in store for him in Paris, and his life in New York, when alone in the hot summer of 1927. This first English edition, illustrated with drawings by Garry Shead, offers up a reprise of Miller’s views on Europe on the brink of great changes, counterpointed by his own personal sexual revellry and freedom of choice.
