Interview with Magnus Toren, Director of the Henry Miller Library

PLAY

With his skipper”s license his only formal degree, Toren has been the executive director of the Henry Miller Library on Highway 1 in Big Sur since 1993. And Miller himself probably could not have picked a better person to keep his legacy alive among the redwoods and rocks he so treasured.

It”s fitting that Toren is Swedish, given that Europeans have always appreciated Miller more than his American compatriots. Toren, like Miller, seems to hold a limitless reserve of youthful enthusiasm for exploring and rejoicing in life and the creative spirit.
