Description
Connie and Erica begin the interview discussing the background of the book and how it came about through correspondence with Henry Miller. They proceed to discuss how Erica was forced to insert herself, in the first person, into the narrative, and how this represented a challenge for her as a fiction writer. Connie and Erica move on to talk about the confrontation between body and soul that Henry Miller’s work represents, and how that confrontation signifies a problem in America’s puritanical culture. They continue to discuss Henry Miller’s life and the obstacles he faced in becoming and being a writer throughout his literary career. Connie closes the interview requesting an autograph for her copy of the book.
