Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Delta of Venus Anais Nin penned a lush, magical world where the characters of her imagination possess the most universal of desires and exceptional of talents. Among these provocative stories, a Hungarian adventurer seduces wealthy women then vanishes with their money; a veiled woman selects strangers from a chic restaurant for private trysts; and a Parisian hatmaker named Mathilde leaves her husband for the opium dens of Peru. This is an extraordinarily rich and exotic collection from the master of erotic writing.

Review:

"A joyous display of the erotic imagination." The New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

"Inventive, sophisticated...highly elegant naughtiness." Cosmopolitan

Born in Paris in 1903 of parents who were musicians, she aspired at an early age to be a writer. She achieved international fame with the first publication of her diary in 1966 and was in wide demand as a lecturer until illness forced her into retirement. She died in Los Angeles in January 1977.
