Famous for its frank portrayal of life in Brooklyn's ethnic neighborhoods and Miller's outrageous sexual exploits, The Tropic of Capricorn is now considered a cornerstone of modern literature.

Infamous companion novel to Tropic of Cancer. Though notorious for their depiction of sex the books are more about how people go about their lives and never really living. Where as Cancer was about his love of art while living in Paris, Capricorn is about his love of music while living in Brooklyn. Worth reading if just to know that humanity really hasn't changed much in 90 years.
