His years in Paris were the making of Henry Miller. He arrived with no money, no fixed address, and no prospects. He left as the renowned if not notorious author of Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. Miller didnt just live in Parishe devoured it. It was a world he shared with Brassa, whose work, first collected in Paris by Night, established him as one of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century and the most exquisite and perceptive chronicler of Parisian vice.

In Miller, Brassa found his most compelling subject. Henry Miller: The Paris Years is an intimate account of a writers self-discovery, seen through the unblinking eye of a master photographer. Brassa delves into Millers relationships with Anas Nin and Lawrence Durrell, as well as his hopelessly tangled though wildly inspiring marriage to June. He uncovers a side of the man scarcely known to the public, and through this careful portrait recreates a bright and swift-moving era. Most of all, Brassa evokes their shared passion for the street life of the City of Light, captured in a dazzling moment of illumination.
