Shipping calculated at checkout.

The Diary of Anais Nin- 7-volume vintage set. Not a *true* set, as some books are Harvest editions, some are Harvest/HBJ. Volumes 2 and 3 are reprints of the original versions. Editions range from 1966 to 1981. See full descriptions of each book below.

"Anaïs Nin’s diary is a remarkable work of art. Because she believed “the topsoil of our personalities is nothing,” her diary chronicles her interior life, the “uncensored dream, the free unconscious,” and it unspools like a ticker tape. It is a deeply personal document, one that not only reveals the psychological topography of one woman, but one that unveils something of the interior life of all women, all people.

"...This uncensored diary is particularly explosive. It will no doubt enflame the usual brigade of outraged moralists who have heaped scorn upon Nin for daring to live by her own moral code, write about her adventures, and then allow that writing to be published for all to read. The vitriol with which she has been attacked proves her diary hits a nerve, but as H. G. Wells said, “Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo.”" (Kim Krizian, Lit Hub, 2019)
