Beautiful, bored, and bourgeoisie, Sabina leads a double life inspired by her relentless desire for brief encounters with near strangers. Fired into faithlessness by a desperate longing for sexual fulfillment, she weaves a sensual web of deceit across New York. But when the secrecy of her affairs becomes too much to bear, Sabina makes a late-night phone call to a stranger from a bar and begins a confession that captivates the unknown man and soon inspires him to seek her out....

Anaïs Nin never fails to amaze

Another classic Nin work. Psycho sexual and definitely ahead of its time. Deadpan narrator but it works.

Flat audio narration put me to sleep

I should have sampled before I bought. I thought I might dislike the writing itself, but it was the narrator's flat delivery that was the worst aspect of this audiobook. Each time I heard that drone, I wanted to go to sleep. It was only a notch or two above a robotic reading.

Anais Nin is the best. So weird and cool. This book's narrator is a bit flat but I think it works. I'd say get this and listen today.
