The Colossus of Maroussi
by Henry Miller, a review from Powells.com by Jill Owens.
"Henry Miller is one of those authors that I'd just never gotten around to reading ? and, at this point in my life, thought I probably never would, as he certainly wasn't high up on my list of overlooked classic authors. In my experience, Henry Miller fans were all too often also Bukowski and Kerouac fans, which is often a signal that, to put it mildly, our tastes don't overlap much. But last week, I was talking about Greece with a friend who recommended Miller's The Colossus of Maroussi as one of the best books set in Greece that he'd ever read. And as it turns out, I agree."
