Summary, etc.:
The trailblazing memoirist and author of Henry & June recounts her relationships with Henry Miller and others-including her own father. Writing with uncensored white heat, Anas̐ Nin's diaries were like a broad-minded confidante with whom she shared the liberating psychosexual dramas of her life. In this continuation of her notorious Henry & June, she recounts a particularly turbulent period between 1932 and 1934, and the men who dominated it: her protective husband, her therapist, the poet Antonin Artaud, and most consuming of all, novelist Henry Miller, a man whose genius was so demonic, said Anas̐, it could drive people insane. Here too, recounted in extraordinary detail, is the sexual affair she had with her father. At once loving, exciting, and vengeful, it was the ultimate social transgression for which Anas̐ would eventually seek absolution from her analysts.
