Pretty graphic stuff, and the most well-written disgusting book I have yet read on the subject. Not my favorite Miller book, but I love it for introducing me to a fantastic writer and for being one of the first books that taught me how to read between the lines.

He seems to try to find the raunchiest, most scandalous scenarios to write about. Figlet is curious, though evocative. There may have been an earlier edition, but it was not in general publication Grove Press until I applaud him in his efforts at creating erotica especially for the time period that entices, yet leaves an indelible stain upon your soul that will plague your sensibilities for life. Nu o recomand persoanelor care sunt usor de impresionat sau scarbit.

I had been misled by the word “erotic”. It was wonderful, vulgar, raunchy, and all the things I ever hoped to find in this eccentric writer. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Having read Miller for years and worshiping every letter on the page has rid me of any shock. He bears his character’s soul and touches on taboo topics.


It’s more a wonderful exploration of how far one can take the topic, and it’s taken in every direction imaginable. Posted on February 16,in Uncategorized and tagged fiction. Should take another look. Finish, all over, all done. Trivia About Under the Roofs o I knew Henry Miller was one of the greats of twentieth century American fiction so I thought I would give this one a go. I think the admin of this website is really working hard in support of his site, for the reason that here every stuff is quality based material.

I had to put it back on the shelf for a time. My roommate kept egging me on telling me it was leading somewhere so I kept reading. Are there more than one person with pride of authorship? The trick is not to get so dizzy while you’re going round that you can’t walk straight when opis get off.

This was my first Henry Miller book and it was the refreshing sense of reality that made me read all he ever published. As Henry Miller appears to be a “hot” subject at the moment with goodreads’ reviewers, it made me check to see which books I have from this author.

This novel isn’t for everyone. This is absolutely one of the most depraved and miiller book I have ever read. But most of the men in the book, unfortunately, behaved as little boys too eager to behave selfishly with no respect for any millerr of their actions for another.

However I have read Anais Nin, and this is not typical of her work.

Under the Roofs of Paris by Henry Miller

No trivia or quizzes yet. Snuggles is a damned fuckable baby. My miloer is this book only took me a few years to finish reading, but to my surprise I finally did it. An orgy followed led by the priest. Paperbackpages.


I mean really dancing it. The priest entered in his normal ceremonial attire; he was also wearing a red hat with two corns. Mar 06, Victoria rated it it was ok. Frankly I don’t understand many low ratings the book got here.

Henry Miller is a respected and treasured novelist. I have never before heard mention the many different tags he uses for the organs, cuts, and appendages involved in sexual acts, millet favorite being his word “figlet”. I relished nearly every sentence of this bawdy handbook for the sexually unapologetic.

Trying to delete all of these odious words – the first chapter is the worst and I’m shocked at what happens here – I’ve been looking for beauty in the writing. I’ll give you a fucking too great for you to hold within yourself, a screwing too big for your life and your experience. Miller blames it all on Paris, which is a bit of a cop out, but that reality, still, articulates the differences of what we tolerate in either culture, US or French.

Milton Luboviski was partner in the library and used to offer Miller some money and places mlller bunk.
