Anais Nin (1903-1977) is an iconic literary figure and one of the most notable experimental writers of the twentieth century. As one of the first women to explore female erotica, Nin revealed the inner desires of her characters in a way that made her works a touchstone for later feminist writers. Swallow Press is the premier US publisher of books by and about Nin. Deirdre Bair is author of Anais Nin: A Biography and the National Book Award-winning Samuel Beckett: A Biography.
"Modern fiction has seldom been so incisively and sensitively
"Miss Nin writes not only for the writer and the artist but for everyone."
