Henry Miller (1891-1980), author of Tropic of Cancer and longtime friend and lover of Anaïs Nin, is regarded as one of the twentieth century’s most innovative and controversial writers.
Kim Krizan is an Academy Award-nominated writer of the films Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. Her tongue-in-cheek history of the great femme fatales of history, Original Sins: Trade Secrets of the Femme Fatale, was published last year and is available on Amazon. Krizan also wrote the introduction to the latest installment of Nin's diary, Mirages: The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin, 1939-1947.
Jean Owen received her PhD in Cultural Studies and Humanities in 2013 from the University of London. Her thesis looked at narratives of incest in myth and memoir which implicate adult daughters and their fathers as consenting subjects. Currently, she is working on a series of interviews with well-known British scholars who have written on extreme sexualities. She is also writing a memoir titled The Poacher’s Daughter.
Alfred Perlès 1897-1990), Austrian native and author of Sentiments Limitrophes, Le Quatuor en Ré Majeur and My Friend Henry Miller, was the inspiration for Carl, one of Miller’s key characters in Tropic of Cancer, and was one of Miller’s closest lifelong friends.
