Henry Miller - In Russian

"My misfortune, metaphysically speaking, is that I was born neither in the time of Jesus nor in holy Russia of the nineteenth century." -- Henry Miller, Plexus (p.637)
By trawling the internet for Miller content, I came across a site devoted to Henry entirely in Russian: henrymiller.nm.ru. I don't speak Russian, but maybe some of you do. For the rest of us, all there is to see is a bibliography that contains small photos of book covers of Russian editions; plus, six pages of pictures of Henry.
For the book cover above (for a 1999 edition of Plexus), I copied the title from this Russian site, Googled it for Images, then found this one at this Russian bookseller site. I could only discipher the title of this book as Plexus after searching it by its ISBN number (ISBN 5-8370-0221-9).
Here's an on-line transcription of Tropic Of Cancer in Russian, embellished with sexually explicit drawings.
You know, I don't think I've ever found a French site devoted to Miller. I have no idea how he's regarded in France these days.
One last thing: Miller's major works are searchable by word, right on your computer. Maybe it's been like this all along--I had no idea--but, using Amazon.com for a search of, say, Tropic Of Cancer, one can scroll down to "Inside This Book" and type in a word or phrase. The resulting list will give you a page number and the sentence in which the word appears. You can sign up to view the entire passage, or just grab your own copy and look it up.

Wow! I thought as I read these lines, and clicked on the link. But - as it often happens in the Leviathan called "Internet"
- I found only a "Document not found"-page.

The image in your article shows the cover of Henry MillerĀ“s "Plexus" in Russian language.

Bye and thank you for your wonderful website!
