Publisher's Summary

Anaïs Nin was an influential and acclaimed writer best known for her diaries that cover six decades from the 1910s to the 1970s. In addition to her famous journals, her works include novels, essays, poetry, studies, and erotica - many of which remain popular to this day. As one of the first prominent female authors of erotica, Nin led a controversial life that was subject to many rumors. Her fearlessness when it came to tackling taboo topics such as incest, sexual abuse, and extra-marital affairs would earn her both staunch supporters and zealous critics.

Inside you will read about:

  • Early Years of Abuse
  • Seducing her Father
  • Delta of Venus
  • Anaïs’ Double Life and Husbands
  • The Diary of Anaïs Nin
  • Late Life and Death
  • And much more!

In the 1960s, Anaïs Nin’s unconventional lifestyle, which included two simultaneous husbands and numerous casual partners, turned her into a feminist icon. Since then, her legacy as a scandalous woman and an exceptional author has continued to captivate audiences.

A. Nin

Not quite an hour but a good lecture on another ageless author. Definitely worth a go.
