Published for the first time in English, Paris 1928 (Nexus II) continues in true Henry Miller fashion the narrative begun in Nexus, the third volume of the Rosy Crucifixion trilogy. A rough draft that Miller ultimately abandoned, the story describes Miller's first wondrous glimpse of Paris and underscores several of the recurrent themes of his work. These previously unpublished memoirs capture Miller's troubled relationship with his second wife, June; reflections on what he left behind in New York's sweltering summer of 1927; and the anticipation of all that awaits him in Europe. Paris 1928 presents Miller's views on Europe on the brink of great changes, counterpointed by his own personal sexual revelry and freedom of choice. Illustrations in this edition are by Australian artist and filmmaker Garry Shead.

"Suzanne had been on the stage. amy was a model. physically an utter contrast, they were mentally and emotionally much alike." "Russia, Russia. we were getting nearer and nearer to it. How wonderful it would be to set foot on that soil made sacred by Dostoievsky, Tolstoy, Pushkin, Gorky, Turgeniev, Andrayev, Lermontov, and all the mad dreamers who had written of the brotherhood of man!" "I couldn't help wondering, seeing how eager they were, if there would be enough to share..meanwhile Suzanne had undressed . the hair on her cunt was dewy and bristly. I ran my hand up her crotch to make sure it wasn't all a dream. 'you'll give me a good fuck afterwards, won't you darling,' she said. 'I hope so,' I said. 'open it a little, will you?' she parted her lips. almost like a priest breaking bread..'.don't let amy drain you,' she said, holding her cunt open for me to inspect. amy knocked at the door. 'I love to be fucked but not by a drunk.' she raised her skirt and placed my hand on her cunt. 'Christ!' she groaned, fishing out my prick. she bent down and put it in her mouth. 'God, it's good,' she said. 'men get what they want when they want it, don't they?' I told her she was adorable. I promised her a royal fuck."
