Publisher's Summary

Anais Nin wrote her diary at the end of 1931, at the close of a sexually tumultuous and emotional year as part of a ménage a trois with fellow writer Henry Miller and his beautiful wife June Mansfield.

'I really believe that if I were not a writer, not a creator, not an experimenter, I might have been a very faithful wife.' Nin's passionate and consuming relationship with Henry & June transformed a previously monogamous wife into an uninhibited and sexually liberated woman. Henry & June is a forthright and riveting account of a woman discovering her sensuality.

Our production is read by Cherie Lunghi. As a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company she has appeared in London and Stratford in many of its productions. Amongst her many film appearances have been Roland Joffe's 'The Mission', John Boorman's 'Excalibur' and Kenneth Branagh's 'Frankenstein'.

    "Confusing Narrator"

    The narrator's voice is a low, breathy contralto. Very low. Although she is an excellent reader, the deep quality of her voice makes this already melodramatic text a caricature of itself. It flattens the quality of the listening experience, and makes it hard to take the content seriously.

    Story
    "Not Just These Days"

    To me the story is very telling of the kind of being man (and woman) really are. The story coming from 1931, my generation has been told that the 1970s were the years of the sexual revolution. To the contrary of this story, it may have happened way before then and before this writing. While most people will never go to the depths that are told in this book, the sexual mind will take them there time and time again regardless of your public portrayal. You know it's true.

    Story
    "A quest into human mind"

    I was more captivated with the narration than I thought I would be. There is something poetic about the flow of thought, even if it does suddenly leap somewhere totally new and is at times hard to follow. An interesting view into the mind of someone who tries to find themselves in a world too rigid for their needs.
