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.

People who say they love Anais Nin almost always mean they love some of ... April 19 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It is a shame that Anais Nin is far more significant as an author of random proverbs and quotes than of novels. She is most famous for the notes she made in her journals. Her novels lack coherent plotting and engaging character development. The characters in this novel remain quite vague and unrealized as concrete creatures throughout, and the plot is almost non-existent. People who say they love Anais Nin almost always mean they love some of her wonderful one-liners.
