Where did Henry Miller write Tropic of Cancer? Yes, Paris, but just where in Paris? Well, right here! Tho’ we assume he spent time (hint, hint) in many other locales… This house (am unsure if it was the same colour, then)…was where Miller penned TOC between 1930 & 1934. His Paris life was well, dissimilar from most of ours. Needless to say TOC was banned in the US, Britain & Canada for years. The book generated much heat at the time…but things change non?) Fast forward 65 years and students in a Radcliffe Publishing Course ranked TOC as # 84 on a ranking of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century. ….what, you wonder, as 99th?
