Mirages: The Unexpurgated Diaries of Anaïs Nin 1939-1947

Callie Hitchcock reviews an edition of Nin’s life writing for 3:AM Magazine:

“Nin’s effusive narrative […] chronicles the vast annals of love and literature in the first 8 years Nin came to the United States after fleeing Paris and the encroaching WWII. This compilation of entries has been re-printed in 2013 after Nin’s second/simultaneous husband, Rupert Pole, commissioned them the year her first husband, Hugh Guiler died in 1985. […] She is a neurotic, a visionary, and a ravenous epicurean of the known world.”

  1. Is that really Henry Miller? Miller met Nin (as far as I know) in ’31, when he was 40… he would have been well bald by then, I think. That looks a lot like Hugo Guiler. I think the Internet is working its magic on us, here…

      Ha! You have a good eye! The caption was automated in this case, and I must have let it slip by. Thanks for pointing that out! 🙂
