About the Author


Anais Nin—the celebrated novelst, diarist, and short story writer—was born in France and spent her childhood in various parts of Europe and in New York. Nin returned to New York just before the outbreak of World War II, and she spent the rest of her life living there and in Paris and Los Angeles. Her work is characterized by a interest in the subconscious. Her five novels in the Cities of the Interior series focus on different female types and follow their lives through lovers, art, and analysis. In 1973 Nin received an honorary doctorate from Philadelphia College of Art. She was elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters in 1974.

Perfection. This novella is like a dream. I have it by my bed and read it always. Loved it so much I tattooed it's words on my waist. (Not ALL of it's words, just a few...)

Nin is more widely read for her diaries than her fiction, but the student of literature can find value in her fiction, because she was a writer's writer. She influenced writers from Henry James to Lawrence Durrell to Gore Vidal. She had her own unique idea of surrealist fiction, which she called "extended prose poems". House of Incest is an example of Nin's unique, fluid, spontaneous way of writing, in which only internal psychological and emotional events stood as notes in her composition.
