Ladders to fire by Anaïs Nin( Book )

2 editions published between 1946 and 1959 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Ladders to Fire explores the erotic attachments of four young women. Nin described it as a "woman's struggle to understand her own nature." It began a five-volume "continuous novel," Cities of the Interior, which includes Children of the Albatross (1947), The Four-Chambered Heart (1950), A Spy in the House of Love (1954), and Solar Barque (1959). Set in the pre-war, expatriate Paris of Henry Miller, this novel-which shocked Nin's contemporaries-draws its inspiration from her confessional diaries. Although Nin found in her diaries a profound mode of self-creation and confession, she could not reveal this intimate record of her own experiences during her lifetime. Instead, she turned to fiction, where her stories and novels became artistic "distillations" of her secret diaries. This 1995 reissue of the 1946 novel Ladders to Fire has a new cover and foreword
Henry and June : from the unexpurgated diary of Anaïs Nin by Anaïs Nin( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Drawn from the original, uncensored journals of Anais Nin, Henry and June is an intimate account of a woman's sexual awakening. It covers a single momentous year - from late 1931 to the end of 1932 - during Nin's life in Paris, when she met Henry Miller and his wife, June. She fell in love with June's beauty and Henry's writing and, soon after June's departure for New York, began a fiery affair with Henry, which liberated her sexually and morally but undermined her marriage and led her into psychoanalysis. One question dominated her thoughts: what would happen when June returned to Paris? That event took place in October 1932, leaving Nin trapped between two loves - Henry and June. Drawn from the original, uncensored journals of Anais Nin, this is an intimate account of a woman's sexual awakening

Children of the albatross by Anaïs Nin( Book )

1 edition published in 1959 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From the Back Cover: Djuna is a woman of forty with an unexplained fortune. A former ballet dancer, her only friends are associates from that world, men who tend to attract her by their least mature qualities. So when she meets seventeen-year-old Paul, she is stirred to her depths. Paul is in flight from his father, and she, for reasons buried in her past, needs the opposition of a father figure to sharpen her own desire. Set against the cafe life of Montmartre, Children of the Albatross remains one of Nin's most poignant works, which delicately captures the nuances and half-dreamed sensations of adolescent love
