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:

About the Author

Anais Nin was the author of novels, short stories, critical studies, a collection of essays, two volumes of erotica, and nine published volumes of her Diary. 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.
