- Black Spring is a novel by the American writer Henry Miller, published in by the Obelisk Press in Paris, France.

For Nassun, it feels like a book about manipulation: of others, of self, of magic. And this book feels more earth-shattering exactly because of that.

Though ambivalent about his job, he suspects there's more to life than earning a living off other people's : Random House Publishing Group.
