    and I definitely don't recommend Almanac.  And I can't read most of Henry Miller either.  But I'd call Miller a writer who rarely transcends his gender biases, even for a moment, and reading him sympathetically requires a level of self-hatred I can't even begin to summon.  It's one thing to read misogynist work.  It's another thing to read work that specifically celebrates misogyny, reveling in it like a pig rolls in shit, and requiring that readers roll in it too, and like it.  Feh.
