Henry Miller Books, Henry Miller poetry book Just Wild about Harry Authors: Henry Miller
Publisher: New Directions Publishing
Published Date: 1979
Categories: Drama
A melo-melo in seven scenes," Just Wild About Harry is Henry Miller's only excursion into playwriting. Harry is pure Miller, welling up from the same abundant love of life and freedom from convention that made its author the dean of writers dedicated to human liberation. Admittedly inspired by lonesco and the Theatre of the Absurd, Miller's tragicomic slapstick is nevertheless as American as the Marx Brothers and the blues - the simple story of a heartless Harry (the one the ladies are wild about) who learns a bittersweet lesson about life, death, and love. Begun in Europe in 1960, Just Wild About Harry was first published by New Directions in 1963. "

Continuing the subversive self-revelation begun in Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, Henry Miller takes readers along a mad, free-associating journey from the damp grime of his Brooklyn youth to the sun-splashed cafes and squalid flats of Paris.

Eugene Field Poem
Sister's Cake
 by Eugene Field

She'd crave a change from parlor life to that below the stairs,
And that, eschewing needlework and music, she should take

At breakfast, then, it would befall that Sister Jane would say:
