Publisher's Summary

From her famous diaries, which she began in 1914 at the age of 11, Anais Nin reads passages that reflect the recurring themes of her work. In a slow, clear, heavily accented but hypnotic voice, Nin draws the listener into her spell-binding stories of a highly personal world as she paints a vivid picture of a woman as artist and self. This is an extraordinary, historic, archival, and memorable recording that will speak in a fresh voice to new generations.

Critic Reviews

"One of the most remarkable diaries in the history of letters." (Los Angeles Times)
"Sensitive and frank...a unique blend of the poetic and the precise. She charts the human chemistry of her relationships, noting changes, catalysts, fissions...Her diary is a dialogue between flesh and spirit." (Newsweek)

A Gem

As lovely as her words are, her delivery is just as interesting and engrossing. Alternating between a humerous almost-disaster and her own highly stylized feminist manifesto, this is a very satisfying, if short, primer for those unfamiliar with Nin's work and a treat for the already converted. The audio quality is as good as one would expect from source material nearly 40 years old. Highly recommended!

Un error

No me gusto. Lo consegui porque me lo recomendo una amiga, pero ni su estilo ni sus historias para mi valieron la pena ni mi tiempo

Overpriced as usual

$12 (and of course membership costs) for a 40 minute audiobook?

What a greedy company amazon is...I wonder what Anais Nin would've thought of her work being sold like this...
