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.

A Spy In The House Of Love is special

Any additional comments?

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.

A sensuous experience!

Amazing piece of work. An absorbing story about infidelity within a dissolving marriage. Anais Nin is brilliant at capturing the essence of female sensuality, mystery and complexity.
