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.

'A handful of perfectly fold fables, and prose which is so daringly elaborate, so accurately timed...using words as magnificently colorful, evocative and imagist as any plastic combination on canvas but as mysteriously idiosyncratic as any abstract.' -Times Literary SupplementAbout the Author:
AnaÃƒÂ¯s Nin (1903-1977) is most famous for The Diary of AnaÃƒÂ¯s Nin, seven volumes of which were published between 1966 and 1980. Her erotica, Delta of Venus and Little Birds, published posthumously, were bestsellers, and the first of four unexpurgated diaries, Henry and June, was the inspiration for the 1990 Philip Kaufman movie of the same name.
