'I was approaching my thirty-third year, the age Christ was crucified. A
wholly new life lay before me.' Henry Miller called the end of his life in
America and the start of a new, bohemian existence in 1930s Paris his 'rosy
crucifixion'. His searing fictionalized autobiography of this time of
liberation was banned for nearly twenty years. Sexus, the first volume in
The Rosy Crucifixiontrilogy, looks back to his early sexual escapades in
Brooklyn, and his growing infatuation with the playful, teasing dance hall
hostess who will become the great obsession of his life. 'American
Literature begins and ends with the meaning of what Miller has done.'
Lawrence Durrell
