About the Author
Anais Nin (1903-1977) was one of the 20th century's most innovative and influential writers. When her famous diaries were published beginning in the 1960s, containing portraits of Henry Miller, Otto Rank, Antonin Artaud, Gore Vidal et al., she became an instant celebrity, drawings thousands to her lectures and millions to her books. One of her diaries, Henry and June, was made into a major Hollywood film of the same title (1990), and her Delta of Venus: Erotica was a posthumous bestseller. Because her work contains universal truths and meaning, it is as relevant today as it has ever been.
