©1966, 1967, 1969, 1971, 1974, 1976 Anais Nin; (P)1972, 1993, 1998, 2007 HarperCollins Publishers
"One of the most remarkable diaries in the history of letters." (Los Angeles Times)
"Sensitive and frank...a unique blend of the poetic and the precise. She charts the human chemistry of her relationships, noting changes, catalysts, fissions...Her diary is a dialogue between flesh and spirit." (Newsweek)
As lovely as her words are, her delivery is just as interesting and engrossing. Alternating between a humerous almost-disaster and her own highly stylized feminist manifesto, this is a very satisfying, if short, primer for those unfamiliar with Nin's work and a treat for the already converted. The audio quality is as good as one would expect from source material nearly 40 years old. Highly recommended!
I was excited to see this recording listed, but it's difficult to understand with Anais Nin's heavy accent, which means I've not been able to get through it.
