A Cafe in Space, Vol. 9 contains several excerpts from Anais Nin's unpublished 1950s diary in which she describes the "trapeze life" swinging back and forth across the country from her husband in New York to her lover in Los Angeles, and how difficult it was to keep her men in the dark about each other. Another important document in Vol. 9 is a letter of absolution to Nin from Hugh Guiler, her husband, written only weeks before Nin's death. Critical articles on Nin's writing and how her persona was carefully crafted, on two of her contemporaries, Lawrence Durrell and Antonin Artaud, as well as creative pieces by two of Nin's former students, along with reviews of two important publications on Henry Miller and by Anais Nin, complete this issue of A Cafe in Space. A must-have for any Nin, Miller, Durrell, or Artaud enthusiast.

Anais Nin (1903-1977), diarist and novelist, was one of the most progressive female voices of the twentieth century, inspiring a generation of readers attuned to her message of self-exploration. Author of 15 volumes of diaries, a notable collection of novels, critical writing, and bestselling erotica, Nin's fame came late in her life after decades of obscurity, during which time she purchased and operated her own printing press in order to publish her work. She was often told that her writing was ahead of its time, and when the cultural revolution of the 1960s blossomed, so did an audience for her work. Her diaries were an instant success, and readers are still finding that Nin's message resonates with them today.
