An extraordinarily rich and exotic collection from the mistress of erotic writing


In Delta of Venus, Anais Nin pens a lush, magical world where the characters of her imagination possess the most universal of desires and exceptional of talents. Among these provocative stories, a Hungarian adventurer seduces wealthy women then vanishes with their money; a veiled woman selects strangers from a chic restaurant for private trysts; and a Parisian hatmaker named Mathilde leaves her husband for the opium dens of Peru.

The unknown client who paid Anais Nin a dollar a page back in the 1940s to write erotica got his money's worth and to spare.
