What People are Saying About This
Anais Nin's diaries live up to our expectations of them. A thrilling piece of work. Truth, perception, artistry.
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.
No other diarist can bring us to the life, experience, the thoughts and emotions with such intensive vividness.
