Henry Miller in Bug Collectors (January 2015)

Reviews

Surprisingly shocking given it’s 90! years old. Herman Miller just doesn’t give a fuck if you whore of a reader enjoys his meanderings. (See what I did there)

Blurber Norman Mailer opines that when Miller gets going, there's some great writing going on--which is true. It's also true that his famous verbosity is in full fruit here, and I found that reading this doorstop was often an unenviable chore. The plot, such as it is, concerns an aspiring novelist and his kooky wife and their attempts to live by their wits whilst circulating among New York's Bohemians during the interwar period. The book's core, though, is much more about the intellectual content of the group's discussions about their reading, often in philosophy of history and literature. The book can be amusing, as when the narrator opens a speakeasy and the clientele turns the novel towards being a sort of Duffy's Tavern for eggheads. The logorrhea here is real, and painful, but there's some very interesting and thought-provoking prose as well.… (more)
