The Tropic of Cancer

The Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller
☆☆☆/5

THE GREAT READING BINGE OF 2016

Genre: Fiction/Banned Book

The cancer of time is eating us away.

This has been on my list for quite some time. Just because nothing gets better than BANNED BOOK, right?
This is a somewhat autobiographical account of the years that Miller spent in Paris trying to be a writer. I guess. It was heavily dense prose about the cancer that is society and the stain that is humanity and overall, how much of a whore Paris is. It was vulgar to the point of being cringe worthy and a bit racey for the time. I can see why it was banned. XD 

Overall, not a bad read unless your easily offended. In that case, avoid it like the clap. It was beautifully distasteful and was a invigorating look into the cesspool of society.
