"The Kinkdom and the Power," heading the Molly Giles review of new books on Henry Miller, revived my memories of his afternoons in Beverly Hills in September, 1977.
In three special Saturday sessions in the Actors and Directors Lab, Miller held forth for two incredible hours to an audience that wouldn't let go of him. We were completely oblivious to the fact that Henry Miller was resting on a wheelchair, so powerful was he in action and with such charisma.
He amazed us with his knowledge of persons and places together with the books he carried in his luggage, intellectually and emotionally, throughout his life. . . .
Indeed, Henry Miller impressed one as being surely "the happiest man alive" and living and breathing "nothing but the marvelous," taking great pleasure in writing and painting despite the aches and pains of old age.
