PRAISE FOR LITTLE BIRDS
"[It is] so distinct an advance in the depiction of female sensuality that I felt, on reading it, enormous gratitude."-Alice Walker

From the Back Cover

"One of contemporary literature's most important writers."-Newsweek Anas Nin explores passion in all its forms, from two strangers on a moonlit Normandy beach to a woman's sudden fulfillment at a public hanging. Evocative, compelling, superbly erotic, Little Birds is a powerful journey into the mysterious world of sex and sensuality. Anas 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, two volumes of erotica, and nine published volumes of her Diary. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Manuel and his wife were poor, and when they first looked for an apartment in Paris, they found only two dark rooms below the street level, giving onto a small stifling courtyard. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful, wondrous, extraordinary filth. June 13 2004
By mary
Format:Paperback
Little Birds is a compilation of Anais Nin at her best - these stories are jagged, sweet little pieces of the author herself. As you read them, you reassemble them for a clearer picture of her. Nin was far ahead of her day, always. She can be outright disgusting, but in a way that is absolutely beautiful and touching. She brings out things we've all thought of. And some of have acutally acted upon - if you have not, Anais Nin will inspire you to do so.
Choosing a favorite is nearly impossible. They are all good and so elegantly constructed that when they are over, you don't want them to be .... you are left wondering what is to become of these characters that have been breathed to life by their creator.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hooked on Anais Nin! April 5 2004
Format:Paperback
Having read Delta of Venus, I couldn't wait to read another Anais Nin book. Little Birds is the follow-up to Venus. Again, Nin captures your intellect as well as your senses with her dark, lurid and erotic stories. "The Model" is my favorite vignette. Stories that center on painters of nude men and women and their models are always insatiable. This one, of course, is not an exception. I must point out, however, that this effort does not exceed Delta of Venus. The first collection is far more memorable than this one. Even so, Anais Nin explores female desires with unflinching clarity. Little Birds is a true masterpiece written by a woman for women. What beautiful effort! I shall read more of her work in the future...

4.0 out of 5 stars Nin's sexual sublimation Nov. 5 2003
Format:Paperback
Nin, in this interesting collection of very short stories, tersely and quietly impugns the social stigma of promiscuity in a greater context of fantasy and symbol. Virtually devoid of florid descriptions of classical love and the game-like foreplay of courtship, "Little Birds" opens a passage into sedate, frank accounts of tenderness and the force of pure sexuality. Nin knew her audience well, and in tampering with sacrosanct traditions ever so lightly, she caresses the eroticism of taboo as much as that of standard sexual fantasy. This is truly a sublime read.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't want this to end! April 18 2002
Format:Paperback
Let me begin by saying that I had not previously read Nin before, but was recommended to it. I was familiar with the works of Pauline Reage - but this took my breath away. Where Reage is dark and desparate, and a victim to her passion(obsession?), Nin rejoices in the tastessightssmellssensations of pleasure with the soul of an artist and a gourmet. There is a wealth of emotion here - If anyone is confused about the difference between pornography and erotica, this will set them straight. Erotica is literature, and transcends the purely physical. This is as much an arousal of the mind as of the body. Men especially need to read more works of this type if they are looking for a deeper understanding of how women think and feel about sex.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, yet again Feb. 21 2002
Format:Paperback
Anais writes erotica like no other writer. She makes you feel what her characters are feeling. You escape into their world of fantasy. Anais brings out the erotic side in you. She makes you want to experience everything that her characters are experiencing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read Read Read Sept. 9 2000
Format:Paperback
I never read Anais Nin before. My introduction to her came via Henry Miller. She writes unlike Miller in every way except one and that is seeking for an expression of the "truth" of humanity. I found myself stirred in more than one way. Books are a private thing. And in the privacy of this lady's world, as in the privacy of Henry Miller's, one can find everything that is beautiful about living.
