In one sense, this is Henry Miller's last book. Miller, a literary giant whose pivotal works The Tropic of Cancer and The Tropic of Capricorn affected the course of 20th-century literature, met the last great love of his life - the beautiful young actress and dancer Brenda Venus - when he was a frail old man in his late 80s. Miller began a passionate correspondence with Venus, pouring all the love and ardor he could not otherwise express into the letters he wrote. This extraordinary love story is culled from the hundreds of letters across the several years of their moving and unique affair. Along with the letters, Brenda Venus provides a continuing text that chronicles their lives and the deep affection for one another that bound them together until Miller's death at age eighty-nine.

(Key Words: Henry Miller, Biography, Letters, Correspondence, Love Letters, Brenda Venus, Gerald Seth Sindell, Lawrence Durrell).
