Overview

The continuation of the story begun in Henry and June, exposing the shattering psychological drama that drove Nin to seek absolution from her psychoanalysts for the ultimate transgression. “It is [Nin’s] posthumously published uncensored diaries that will make her immortal” (Booklist). Introduction by Rupert Pole; Index; photographs.

Anais Nin is known for her erotic writings collected in Delta of Venus and Little Birds and her extensive diaries. When her diary for 1932 to 1934 was first published in 1966, explicit portions were deleted. Here now is that missing portion detailing Nin's relationship with her father and with writer Henry Miller and his wife June, first explored in the bestselling Henry and June, made into a motion picture. Photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Donna Seaman
Perhaps the world's most famous diarist, Anais Nin caused quite a stir with the publication of her edited journals, but it is her posthumously published uncensored diaries that will make her immortal. This stunner is the second unexpurgated volume. The first, "Henry and June" , reveals the knotty relationships between Henry Miller, his wife, June, and Nin. Now June is out of the picture, and Henry is still Nin's favorite lover, but he has lots of competition as Nin turns 30 and continues to live with her long-suffering husband while seducing both her analysts--Rene Allendy and Otto Rank--and toying with various other admirers, including Antonin Artaud. There is something both monstrous and perversely admirable about Nin as she glides, perfectly powdered and perfumed, from lover to lover, spinning an intricate web of lies to cover her tracks, then rushing home to record every breathless thought and moment in her journal with explicit detail. Her "insane love of life" drives her to compulsive interpretation and documentation, and a determined courting of ecstasy and revelation. Gradually, her daring honesty, fearless femininity, and tireless articulation win us over, yet not enough to cushion the shock of her ultimate transgression: a wild love affair with her long-estranged father, her equal in audacious sexuality. By the conclusion of this harrowing chronicle, Anais has ended this flagrant, dangerous, and narcissistic union and rededicated herself to her art, anticipating future conquests and adventures. Disquieting yet magnetic.
