Bio: Henry Valentine Miller was an American writer and painter. He was known for breaking with existing literary forms and developing a new sort of novel that is a mixture of novel, autobiography, social criticism, philosophical reflection, surrealist free association, and mysticism, one that is distinctly always about and expressive of the real-life Henry Miller and yet is also fictional.
