Sexus by Henry Miller( Book )
18 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 29 libraries worldwide
"Sexus" ist Millers am hartnäckigsten in den literarischen Untergrund verbanntes Werk, das in Amerika erst ein Vierteljahrhundert nach seinem Entstehen gedruckt wurde und selbst in Frankreich achtzehn Jahre lang verboten war. Unbekümmert um alle moralischen und formalen Schranken und mitgerissen von der Sturzflut der Erinnerung, hat Miller in diesem "obszönsten seiner Bücher" (New York Times) ein Stück seines chaotisch-turbulenten Lebens reproduziert: ein orgiastischer Hymnus auf die physische Liebe und ein befreites Leben, Zeugnis einer Aufrichtigkeit, die Kompromisse verachtet

The rosy crucifixion by Henry Miller( Book )
9 editions published between 1955 and 2007 in German and Undetermined and held by 20 libraries worldwide
""Plexus is the core volume in The Rosy Crucifixion: the volume which has the most complete description of Henry Miller's basic values, beliefs, opinions, judgments, both at the time of his 'Crucifixion' and at the later time when the trilogy was written. Plexus is simply the most marvelous volume of emotions and ideas and visions and nightmares about man and society in the twentieth century -- with art as the link perhaps, or as the soul's refuge -- that I have read in many a long year. There is absolutely no subject in the world that Henry Miller does not seem to know about, want to talk about, and to evaluate with the deep authority of wisdom. He is probably the most learned of all our American writers, the most open to ideas and feelings, and yes, the most worshipful of all the aspects of life, as well as the most critical literary spokesman of our time."--Maxwell Geismar." -- Publisher description
