Miller entered into the writer's circle with Tropic of Cancer, which still proves to be Miller's most famous work. Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn depict Miller's lives and loves as an expatriate in Paris. They were first published in France by Jack Kahane at Obelisk Press in the mid-thirties. When the works were brought to the United States, they sparked a thirty year censorship debate that was eventually won by Miller.
