Best-selling author John Purcell on “Sexus”

In this most latest installment of “Books that Changed My Life,” we turn to best-selling author John Purcell, writing in the Syndey Morning Herald:

“Henry Miller, with Sexus, turned me into a true book glutton. I was new to the world of books and making my way alone, so of course I was befriended by one of the friendless.

“Miller was rightly a literary outcast when I read him. But his contagious enthusiasm for books, food, sex, words, history, travel, talk and art completed my initiation. There was no going back.”
