9780720615821: Incest

Anais Nin's Incest reveals secrets so shocking that they were suppressed even when she began publishing her diaries in 1966. Exploring a woman's love life with rarely equalled candour, subtlety and insight, Nin deals openly with a variety of sexual relationships and unsparingly with their complex psychological consequences. Incest is not only the story of her shadowy relationship with her renowned pianist father, Joaquin Nin but also affairs with two analysts, the writer Antonin Artaud; serious infatuations with two cousins, one of them a girl - all at the time as she was married to a Paris financier. . .

About the Author:

Ana-s Nin (1903-1977) was born in Paris and aspired at an early age to be a writer. An influential artist and thinker, she was the author of several novels, short stories, critical studies, a collection of essays, two volumes of erotica, and nine published volumes of her Diary.

From Publishers Weekly:

Picking up where Henry and June (1986) left off, this portion of Nin's diary, which was cut from the expurgated editions published in her lifetime, records her steamy love affair with Henry Miller in Paris, but here her intense adoration gives way to disillusionment. She describes Miller as crude, egotistic, imitative, childishly irresponsible, "a madman." Her real focus, however, is her father, Joaquin Nin, a Spanish pianist and aristocratic Don Juan who seduced her after a 20-year absence. Her graphic account of their lovemaking and of her incestuous romantic feelings is fairly shocking. Nin sought absolution from her psychiatrist and lover, Otto Rank, who advised her to bed her father, then dump him as punishment for abandoning her when she was 10. Nin's ornate, hothouse prose is much rawer than the chiseled style of the expurgated diaries. She seethes with jealousy at Miller's wife June, swoons over poet and actor Antonin Artaud, neglects her protective husband, Hugh Guiler, and describes her traumatic delivery of a stillborn child. Her extraordinary, tangled self-analysis is a disarming record of her emotional and creative growth. Photos.
