Storytime: HENRY MILLER's "The Smile at the Foot of the Ladder"

Unlike earlier Storytime posts of Charles Bukowski reading his own works, this is a surreal short animation based on Henry Miller's novella. Created by Eiko Emersleben & Marcus Ober, it features the music of Tom Waits and is an interesting accompaniment to Miller's story.

There was also an opera of Smile at the Foot of the Ladder by Norwegian composer Antonio Bibalo.

Eiko Emersleben recently worked on Neil Jack's Ujbaz Izbeneki Has Lost His Soul. Miller's book is available from New Directions Publishing and an excerpt can be read on Amazon.
