Product Description

About the Author

Anais Nin—the celebrated novelst, diarist, and short story writer—was born in France and spent her childhood in various parts of Europe and in New York. Nin returned to New York just before the outbreak of World War II, and she spent the rest of her life living there and in Paris and Los Angeles. Her work is characterized by a interest in the subconscious. Her five novels in the Cities of the Interior series focus on different female types and follow their lives through lovers, art, and analysis. In 1973 Nin received an honorary doctorate from Philadelphia College of Art. She was elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters in 1974.

States of Being and States of Feeling March 19 2012
By G. Charles Steiner - Published on
Format: Paperback
Reading this novel in 1991, I was intrigued by the wind-up plot of Djuna's past at the opening of this novel. Then, I was irritated beyond belief with the antics between Michael and Donald.

I quit reading this work because I sensed it was going nowhere. I picked it up again after a couple of months, and I was impressed with the deception of Djuna's relationship to Paul. I was also astonished by the return of Lillian and Jay, central characters from Nin's "Ladders to the Fire."

There are some powerful descriptions of states of being in this novel, states of feeling. There are beatitudes to be found here as well, as if this novel were really a book of wisdom.

But one still wonders: whither does it blow?
