About this Item

On offer is a fascinating and sometimes very sad peek into the mind and soul of a 1960s Hippie Era woman who details her dreams, her therapy sessions and her deepest darkest and most personal revealing thoughts on her psycho sexual problems within this original, handwritten and typed manuscript archive. A rather beautiful woman [included are approximately 12 photos of her and her cat] Nina as she refers to herself, [married name is likely Miller as her husband is Chuck Miller] is very much the beatnik, bohemian and hippie who reveals and extraordinarily intimate personal history following almost a clichéd life: writing originally, we believe from either Flatbush or Brooklyn New York she settled in Fire Island in the 1950s and remained through most of the 1960s. She seems to be of a European background, likely French, mentioning many friends in England and France, her husband is a writer addicted to pornography. In her notes she mentions it was her ability and love of talking 'sexy-dirty' that netted him back when they first met but the origin of her problems begin with childhood and abandonment issues. As per her therapist she records many of her dreams, experiments with marijuana as part of her treatment and within the pages of the archive we read of her desires and intimacies with her therapist though we are unsure how much of it was real or imagined. While some of the reading is entertaining, funny, and insightful, more often it is manic, often very racy and straight talking, but also tinged with sadness, melancholy, a lack of fulfillment and emotionally disturbing. She has some very major issues as to why she seems to desire 'negro' men, her inability to have sex with Jewish men [her father was Jewish] and her parents who went from 'torturing' her by kissing each other in front of her yet them denying her any affection - her father would tell he she was his 3rd cousin and to stop calling him Daddy. [At one point she writes that she watched a little girl sit on her own father's lap and being affectionate which causes Nina to begin a crying jag.] Researchers and historians of psychosexual problems would be hard pressed to find a more intimate and revealing personal account. There are approximately 135 all told, many pages being written or typed on both sides, some age toning and or yellowing etc. and overall the archive is G. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
