Anais Nin (1903-1977) was one of the most unique literary figures of this century. As a novelist she was distinctly catalytic, and her life-long diary resembles no other in the history of letters. Her books have been translated in a dozen languages.
"A prose/poetry dream; a lyrical celebration of the inner life and
the images it evokes."
- Daniel Stern
"Beautiful, rare novels."
- Karl Shapiro
"Real and unmistakable genius."
- Rebecca West
"She explores relationships on a level to which few contemporary novelists penetrate."
- The Atlantic
"She wishes to immerse readers in that flow of sensibility and reflection from which human beings distill the significance of what they do and suffer."
- New York Times
