Under a Glass Bell was self-published by Anaïs Nin in 1944, using a manual press. This collection of thirteen short stories, beautifully crafted in a style influenced by French surrealism, but uniquely Nin’s, brought her national attention when Edmund Wilson of The New Yorker reviewed it. Considered one of Nin’s most successful works of fiction, the tales attain psychological realism through illusory symbolism.
Among the titles are “Houseboat,” “The Mouse,” “Ragtime,” “The Labyrinth,” and “Birth.”
Under a Glass Bell is a celebration of the passionate language of Anaïs Nin.
