Under the Roofs of Paris by Henry Miller
I purchase a book and I never get around to reading it as it gets overtaken mmiller other books. So I started to read this book as, when I jiller it inI had thought this was a book on erotica as I always loved the works by Anais Nin on this genre. Look As Henry Miller appears to be a “hot” subject at the moment with goodreads’ reviewers, it made me check to see which books I have from this author. Looking at the “blurb” I can see why I was mistaken: Here one finds Miller’s characteristic candor, wit, self-mockery, and celebration of the good life.
From Marcelle to Tania, to Alexandra, to Anna, and from the Left Bank to Pigalle, Miller sweeps us up in his odyssey in search of the perfect job, the perfect woman, the perfect experience. There were three good recommendations not necessarily for this book!
Unknown to me also. Well, I looked at this book and basically I was shocked. This is porn at its worst! I must re-examine all my other Miller books and see if they are the same. Now I read all those other books, years ago. Have I become such a prude with the passage of time, or was my mind really “outrageous” at that time. That is what concerns me. Trying to delete all of these odious words – the first chapter is postorum worst and I’m shocked at what happens here – I’ve been looking for beauty in the writing.
No, I cannot see it. Do I want to burn this book as my mother did when she came into my own house one day and found “Lady Chatterly’s Lover”?
And that book was mild by today’s standards. No, I will keep it just to remind myself to read “blurbs” in greater detail. I had been misled by the word “erotic”.

Page after page my head would spin continuously within his relating the countless sins of lords and masters and their man-driven sexual escapades. Miller offers porno as high pistoorum.
I have never before heard mention the many different tags he uses for the organs, cuts, and appendages involved in sexual acts, my favorite being his word “figlet”. I have viewed a few porn films in my time, but nothi My guess is this book only took me a few years to finish reading, but to my surprise I finally did it. I have viewed a few porn films in my time, but nothing compares to this novel and the way Miller had written it for pay.
Pretty graphic stuff, and the most well-written disgusting book I have yet read on the subject. The women he portrays are all in, ready to sexually experiment with any and all, and never regretful of any developing circumstance. Of course, it must be viewed and remembered as fiction. But most of the men in the book, unfortunately, behaved pistlrum little boys too eager to behave selfishly with no respect for any consequence of their actions for another.
Nonetheless, it was instructive for me to privately witness a pisotrum side of life. View all 3 comments.

I read it when I was 16, I remember not being able to put it down. It made me tremble with excitement. I’m an open-minded reader and so it was not offensive. I wanted to reread this book for many years now. Frankly I don’t understand many low ratings the book got here. Why on earth would you read a pornographic novel by an eccentric writer if you can’t take a bit of gang-banging Mar 20, Max Nemtsov rated it really liked it Shelves: Jul 06, John B.
Ages 16 and up. Struggling is not uncommon, for most, but Miller shows no sign of it.
This book is a struggle for most readers, I imagine. It’s exhausting, in fact.
Like many other reviews I read, it was my first erotica nove Jouissance! Like many other reviews I read, it was my first erotica novel and first Miller.
It’s more a wonderful exploration of how far one can take the topic, and it’s taken in every direction imaginable. Well, to the heterosexual male, perhaps. Miller blames opua all on Paris, which is a bit of a cop out, but that reality, still, articulates the differences of what we tolerate in either culture, US or French.
There are many, many golden! What was my other point? If you don’t feel anything after opks this, jiller dig a hole in your backyard, jump on in and have someone fill it up. For good or ill, emotions stir. Boy, I need a cigarette. If you aren’t stirred, you’re probably already half-dead, head to foot. Thank you, Roseanne Barr, for the recommendation. But these art students –they’re all kids, even the instructor–know what it is they’re after, the girl on the soap box is a naked girl with a bush around her cunt and juice between her legs!
