From her famous diaries Anaïs Nin (1903-1977) reads passages which reflect the recurring themes of her work. In a slow, clear, heavily accented, hypnotic voice, Nin draws the listener into her highly personal world and paints a vivid picture of a woman as artist and self. Her dreamy descriptions of a Madame Bovary type village in which lover Henry Miller strolls down the path to her house, a too revealing encounter with the archetypal father, heartrending sensations of childbirth and loss, and an intoxicating and sensuous visit to a Moroccan bathhouse are all lyrically transformed into spell-binding stories. This is an extraordinary, historic, archival, and memorable recording which speaks in a fresh voice to new generations. J.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 93]
