Editorial Reviews for this title:
The original, uncensored 1939 edition of Anais Nin's third book and second volume of fiction is republished for the first time anywhere. Not to be confused with other Nin books titled 'Winter of Artifice,' which have dramatically different contents, these novellas that draw on Nin's experiences are occasionally so graphic in detail that the book was, according to Nin, banned in America. The depiction of the love triangle among Hans, Johanna, and the narrator in "Djuna" is the precursor of Nin's magnificent 'Henry and June,' the first volume of Nin's unexpurgated diary, the movie version of which was the first film to receive the NC-17 rating. One of the few surviving copies of 'The Winter of Artifice' was used to produce this facsimile.
