As he appears in the text:

“Anaïs [Nin] met Henry Miller, a broke and balding forty-year-old, at a lunch in Paris in 1932. Both were married, but an affair quickly took root. (Two decades of their heated letters were later published as A Literate Passion.) Anaïs was soon funneling much of her allowance from Hugh to Henry and his wife, June, for rent and other bills. In 1934, she fronted the money for the first printing of Henry’s first published novel, Tropic of Cancer. Banned in America for obscenity, it has become a modern classic.”
