Publisher Comments:

This bestseller covers a single momentous year during Nin's life in Paris, when she met Henry Miller and his wife, June. "Closer to what many sexually adventuresome women experience than almost anything I've ever read....I found it a very erotic book and profoundly liberating" (Alice Walker). The source of a major motion picture from Universal. Preface by Rupert Pole.

Love can make you blind, it can also make you self-centered, selfish, and uncontrollable. So is the story of Anais Nin and her number of affairs during 1931-1932. Throughout this diary, Nin is in a constant struggle to understand her feelings toward her husband, her cousin, her lover, and her lover's wife, and she never does get a distinct hold on any of it. The writing is poetic, romantic, and erotically honest without being overly crass. It is quite interesting to listen first hand to a woman's sexual awakening especially in the 1930's; however, it is infuriating to read Nin's disregard for anyone's feelings other than her own. I suppose one can only handle so much personal growth at a time.
