In Delta of Venus Anas Nin conjures up a glittering cascade of sexual encounters. Creating her own 'language of the senses', she explores an area that was previously the domain of male writers and brings to it her own unique perceptions. Her vibrant and impassioned prose evokes the essence of female sexuality in a world where only love has meaning.
Contains a preface by the author, adapted from The Diary of Anas Not, Volume III.
Her second volume of erotic writings, Little Birds, is also published by Penguin.
I realize now why Anais Nin is so esteemed. Her prose lends much beauty and sensitivity to human sexuality.
