First English language edition , number 842 of limited edition of 2000.This first English language edition of the second installment in The Rosy Crucifixion trilogy, which caused scandal in Paris, Plexus was originally banned from publication in the US. The trilogy is a fictionalised account of a six year period in Miller's life with the narrative of Plexus tracing the authors desperate journey to becoming a free writer in the wake of abandoning his job and embarking on a new, tempestuous marriage. In response to his critics, Miller would remark,"If it was not good, it was true; if it was not artistic, it was sincere; if it was in bad taste, it was on the side of life."
