nerve.com on Henry Miller’s Opus Pistorum.

“In an affidavit filed with the U.S. Embassy in Paris, (Milton) Lubovski stated that, in 1957, he commissioned Miller to write some purple prose and paid a dollar a page for all the rights to the material. The enterprising Lubovski made five copies of the finished book, titled Opus Pistorum, and made, as Miller suggested, “a few months’ rent from it.” The book went unpublished in every English-speaking country until 1983. For a while, Miller even denied writing it.”
