The Diary of Anais Nin, Volume 1, 1931-1934by Anais Nin
Synopses & Reviews
This celebrated volume begins when Nin is about to publish her first book and ends when she leaves Paris for New York. Nin continues her debate on the use of drugs versus the artist's imagination, portrays many famous people in the arts, and recounts her visits to Sweden, the Brussels World's Fair, Paris, and Venice.
"As unique a literary memoir as has been published...lyrical, and singularly potent." Village Voice
"One of the most remarkable diaries in the history of letters....With this initial publication, Miss Nin, already assured of a place in contemporary literature, makes this doubly secure." Los Angeles Times
"Sensitive and frank...a unique blend of the poetic and the precise. She charts the human chemistry of her relationships, noting changes, catalysts, fissions....Her diary is a dialogue between flesh and spirit." Newsweek
"A joy for its pellucid writing, its descriptions of people and places and its objective self-analysis." Sunday Times
This celebrated volume begins when Nin is about to publish her first book and ends when she leaves Paris for New York. Edited and with a Preface by Gunther tuhlmann; Index.
