What People are saying about this

Karl Shapiro
Anais Nin's diaries live up to our expectations of them. A thrilling piece of work. Truth, perception, artistry.
Herbert Read
An extraordinary book...its egoism is revealed, raised to a high standard of art, by an extremely subtle sensibility, expressed in a prose style of astonishing beauty.
Kojy Nakaea
No other diarist can bring us to the life, experience, the thoughts and emotions with such intensive vividness.
— Kojy Nakaea, Cahier du Livre, Tokyo
