THE DIARY OF ANAIS NIN, VOL. 1: 1931-1934

10 Aug 2020

New Recording from The Talking Book

Narrated By Elisabeth Lagelee, THE DIARY OF ANAIS NIN is the published version of Anaïs Nin’s own private manuscript diary, which she began at age 11 in 1914 during a trip from Europe to New York with her mother and two brothers. Nin would later say she had begun the diary as a letter to her father, Cuban composer Joaquín Nin, who had abandoned the family a few years earlier.

Over the years, the diary would become Nin’s best friend and confidante. Despite the attempts of her mother, therapists Rene Allendy and Otto Rank, and writer Henry Miller, to break Nin of her dependence on the diary, she would continue to keep a diary up until her death in 1977.
