From her famous diaries, that she began in 1914 at the age of eleven, Anais Nin reads passages which reflect the recurring themes of her work. In a slow, clear, heavily accented, hypnotic voice, Nin draws the listener into her spell–binding stories of a highly personal world as she paints a vivid picture of a woman as artist and self. This is an extraordinary, historic, archival, and memorable recording which speaks in a fresh voice to new generations.

Anaïs Nin (1903-1977) was a French-born American novelist and diarist. After publishing over a dozen books, she gained notoriety with the publication of The Diary of Anaïs Nin. There are thirteen published volumes based on her diary. The film Henry and June was also based on this diary.From AudioFile:
The French author and critic Anas Nin wrote her more important works in English. Long considered of minor significance, her fiction is now gaining critical respect, while her diaries remain widely admired for her insights into the literary figures she rubbed elbows with, particularly her lovers Henry Miller and Antonin Artaud. This brief recording contains excerpts from her 1972 reading of her diaries before an appreciative New York audience. Her charm, vivid style, and intellectual acumen penetrate her heavy accent and inexpert delivery. Her often humorous asides add resonance. This volume is an entertaining footnote to her oeuvres and to the literary history of the previous century. Y.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
