Homage to Henry
A Homage to Henry Miller
edited by Jim Haynes

168 pages, 21 x 15 cm
"Henry Miller didn't need New York. He didn't need a creative writing grant. All he needed was a typewriter and a portable radio, a Jake leg press to get him started, an open letter to all and sundry.

He took it from there. Him and his readers. Him and his readers and his publishers."

Jack Saunders
