Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Describes the experiences of two American writers living in Paris and their encounters with French prostitutes.

Synopsis:

This tender and nostalgic work dates from the same period as Tropic of Cancer (1934). It is a celebration of love, art, and the Bohemian life at a time when the world was simpler and slower, and Miller an obscure, penniless young writer in Paris. Whether discussing the early days of his long friendship with Alfred Perles or his escapades at the Club Melody brothel, in Quiet Days in Clichy Miller describes a period that would shape his entire life and oeuvre.

lukas, January 12, 2014 (view all comments by lukas)
Originally written in 1940 and rewritten in 1956 (Big Sur), this is something of a condensed version of Miller's most famous novel, "Tropic of Cancer." By "quiet days," he means drinking, whoring and idling in Paris. He may not have been the first, but he best exemplified the bohemian American artist abroad: penniless, but happy, writing in crappy apartments, drinking cheap liquor, having lots of sex. Women readers might find his explicit descriptions of sex mildly offensive, as he show little to no interest in the woman's point of view.
