If you haven’t poured a glass of Bordeaux and cuddled up with one of Anais Nin’s many published diaries — get thee to the bookstore, fast!
Anais was born in Paris and she had a lifelong, passionate, sexy love affair with… writing. She poured out diaries, erotica, and stories and stood toe to heel with the best writers of her time —including her luvah and lifelong buddy Henry Miller.
Anais loved men, creating, writing, psychology — she had that lust for life or as the French say, joie de vivre! She had affairs, met artists, thinkers, intellectuals, and did everything on her own terms, which is why she’s an Honorary Fling Girl.
Check out her diaries and groundbreaking book Delta of Venus.
IN HER OWN WORDS
(Read these aloud in your best French accent!)
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful
than the risk it took to blossom.”
“How wrong is it for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants,
rather than to create it herself?”
