Henry Miller

Another fascinting man is Henry Miller. Life affiriming i would say. Born in Brooklyn, he was known as "the Brooklyn Boy", a raging, mad, insatiable man, with a thirst for knowledge and of life. He wrote several of my favourite books, my favourite is Tropic of Capricorn - It has all the madness as usual, but still keeps his feet on the ground to some degree, for half of it anyway. Like all great artists, old Henry was misunderstood, though he certainly wanted to be. If you want to know more about the man, read his books, and listen to his interviews, like the one below.

A year ago I thought that I was an artist, I no longer think about it, I am.

1956 interview...
