This engaging summary presents an analysis of Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller, which is closely based on the author’s time as a struggling writer in Paris, when he drifted from friend to friend, scraped together a living through borrowing and mundane jobs, and spent much of his time drinking and womanising. The novel’s explicit sexual content meant that it was considered pornographic when it was first written; consequently, it was the subject of multiple obscenity trials and was initially banned in the US. However, it garnered praise from writers including George Orwell, and is now recognised as one of the most influential books of the 20th century.
