9780811201063: The Air-Conditioned Nightmare (New Directions Paperbook)

His stories and essays celebrate those rare individuals (famous and obscure) whose creative resilience and mere existence oppose the mechanization of minds and souls.

In 1939, after ten years as an expatriate, Henry Miller returned to the United States with a keen desire to see what his native land was really like―to get to the roots of the American nature and experience. He set out on a journey that was to last three years, visiting many sections of the country and making friends of all descriptions. The Air-Conditioned Nightmare is the result of that odyssey.

About the Author:

Henry Miller (1891―1980) was one of the most controversial American novelists during his lifetime. His book, The Tropic of Cancer, was banned in the some U.S. states before being overruled by the Supreme Court. New Directions publishes several of his books.

Review:

“Henry Miller is the nearest thing to Céline America has produced .... He aims not at the ears, brains or consciences, but at the viscera and solar plexus.”
- New Leader
