The publicity helped the book become a best-seller, although critics continued to argue over its value. Black Spring and Tropic of Capricorn (; United States publication, ) are similar in style and feeling to Tropic of Cancer, drawing from the experiences of Miller's boy-hood in Brooklyn, New York, and his early years overseas.
