Anais Nin has been an idol of mine for a long time There are few women of literary stature which I find relatable As a young reader I cherished Judy Bloom As an adult woman I was thrilled to read Anais Nin Intelligent witty and sexually provocative I admire her supreme linguistic talent Her writing in whtever form always maintains a powerful poetic lexicon She made love most fervently when she held the pen in her hand This excerpt from her personal journal is so very intimate flux with sexuality but you feel her grace and delicate vulnerability Something deeply personal left for us readersI also admire Nin because she was an uninhibited sexual being long before it was socially acceptable Is it even acceptable today Sensuality is a secret power in my body someday it will show healthy and ample Wait a while Her thoughts and feelings are confident as she expresses herself an empowering embodiment of feminism even by today's standards Her confidence becomes emboldened with lovers Nin is the epitome of unbridled lust for life

Oktober 1932 terugkeerde voelde Anaïs Nin zich verscheurd ‘Wat een ongelofelijk spel zijn wij drieën aan het spelen’ schreef ze ‘Wie is de demon Wie de leugenaar Wie het meest menselijk Wie de slimste Wie de sterkste Wie heeft het innigst lief?. Is Anais Nin a good writer Ought we take her seriously Apparently some do but the description on the back of the Penguin edition about sums up this book culled from the unexpurgated diaries of Ms Nin during the period in which writer Henry Miller and his wife June Masefield figure large on her horizon it is a compelling account of a woman's sexual and emotional awakening If you don't groan at that charmless phrase variations of which are so thoughtlessly used to describe any risue tome penned by a woman you may enjoy Henry and June here But what this really is this diary so obviously written with publication in mind so much of it is flowery daring and conflicted is a record of one person's unchecked narcissism the diary of a spoiled little rich girl and her self created problems No one comes off well in this the husband is the world's most oblivious cuckold the psychoanalyst a bit of a charlatan surprise who secretly lusts for some Nin the writer a would be volcano who's disappointingly a kitten at heart his wife surely a neurotic Fury who'll end up destroying everyone in the end alas but the narrator comes off worst of all She loves her husband Hugo that bland boob or wait she loves Miller who she's sure will be a great literary genius or no maybe she hates Miller and loves her analyst who can seemingly read her like a book play her like a violin or no it's June Miller's wife absent for most of the time in uestion but always present as the object of Nin's lesbian dreams who dominates all all Sigh Whom she loves depends on the week really but most assuredly she loves Anaïs and one's appreciation of the book depends on how much Anaïs one can stomach I made it to the end after a stretch but didn't feel very good about it
