about

For several years in the sixties, Jeanne Rejaunier often shared Sundays with iconic author Henry Miller at the homes of their mutual friends, as well as at Henry's home in Pacific Palisades. In the course of these gatherings, Miller reflects on literature, film, art, music, and metaphysics, astrology, theosophy, reincarnation, life after death, life on other planets, sexuality, obscenity, women, Anaïs Nin, forgotten writers of the past, and much, much more. Miller and Rejaunier soon discover they have much in common, both being Francophiles, both trained musicians, and both having mentally challenged siblings, Henry a sister, Jeanne a brother. Henry’s relationship with his “boon companion,” Joe Grey, one of the three best friends Henry made in America, runs throughout the book, as Henry also interacts with friends to whom Jeanne introduces him, including a former card carrying Communist dancer/ choreographer, an exotic Portuguese psychic, and a young actress who falls passionately in love with Henry and dies under mysterious circumstances. Woven into the book is Rejaunier’s relationship with Anaïs Nin; her Miller-related experiences while living in Italy; and amusing childhood encounters with Miller’s writing. Encouraging Jeanne in her transition from model and Hollywood actress to bestselling novelist, Miller helps launch Jeanne’s million copy bestseller The Beauty Trap. In My Sundays with Henry Miller, Jeanne Rejaunier chronicles a new side to literary immortal Henry Miller that has never previously been revealed.
