Anais Nin
Anais Nin | Deirdre Bair
3 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
"To live life as a dream" was Nin's motto, and she did so. She was a bigamist for more than thirty years, creating a "Lie Box" to help her keep her stories straight. And always she kept her diary, which eventually became one of the most astonishing renderings of a contemporary woman's life, noted as much for what she left out as for what she included. Bair's biography fills in the blanks and shows how Nin reflected the major themes that have come to characterize the latter half of the twentieth century: the quest for the self, the uses of psychoanalysis, and the determination of women to control their own sexuality.

It‘s really annoying when there‘s 2-8 copies available of the books I want at the library, except they‘re not available because every single damn copy is not at my actual library. Why does my library not have ANYTHING!?
