ANAÏS NIN (1903-1977) was born in Paris and aspired at an early age to be a writer. An influential artist and thinker, she was the author of several novels, short stories, critical studies, a collection of essays, nine published volumes of her Diary, and two volumes of erotica, Delta of Venus and Little Birds.
"Henry and June is in essence a record of Nin's erotic awakening...At once effusive and measured, lyrical and taut, this slim volume is the record of a woman struggling for clarity in the dialogue with herself."--The New York Times Book Review "Tightly drawn and full of passion."--The Cleveland Plain Dealer "Nin's own sense of her feminine nature splendidly revealed."--Booklist --
