Author(s): Henry Miller
Nexus is the third volume of the scandalous trilogy The Rosy Crucifixion, Henry Millers major life work. The exhilarating final volume of Henry Millers semi-autobiographical trilogy, Nexus follows his last months in New York. Trapped in a bizarre menage-a-trois with his fiery wife Mona and her lover Stasia, he finds his life descending into chaos. Finally, betrayed and exhausted, he decides to leave America and sail for Paris, to discover his true vocation as a writer.
Henry Miller (1891-1980) is one of the most important American writers of the 20th century. His best-known novels include Tropic of Cancer (1934), Tropic of Capricorn (1939), and the Rosy Crucifixion trilogy (Sexus, 1949, Plexus, 1953, and Nexus, 1959), all published in France and banned in the US and the UK until 1964. He is widely recognised as an irreverent, risk-taking writer who redefined the novel and made the link between the European avant-garde and the American Beat generation.
