Henry Miller: The Man & His Works

"There is a rumor going around that Henry Miller has suffered from critical neglect in the English-speaking world. As this volume amply demonstrates, such is by no means the case."
(George Wickes, "Introduction," Henry Miller And The Critics; September 15, 1962).

When George Wickes conducted an interview with Henry Miller in 1962 for the Paris Review, it was the beginning of a long-standing association with the author. That same year, he was compiling a selection of letters for Lawrence Durrell & Henry Miller: A Private Correspondence, which would see publication the following year (1963). Also that year, Wickes edited a collection of critiques, memoirs and court transcripts on Miller called Henry Miller and The Critics, published by the Southern Illinois University Press.

Henry Miller and The Critics (1963) was reprinted in 1969 as Henry Miller: The Man & His Works, on a small press imprint from Toronto, Canada, called Forum House Publishing.

I have a small paperback by Wickes titled Henry Miller: Down and Out in Paris, published in 1969 by Village Press. There's a note on the copyright page saying "First published in Americans in Paris 1903-1939 by Doubleday & Co, Inc, New York."
