What I believe is different about FIRE is that it reveals Anais's explorations and experiementation with her inner "bad girl" in a way that she had only just begun in HENRY AND JUNE and INCEST. In it she is still married to Hugh and involved with Henry Miller, but in FIRE she has a relationship with the famous analyst Otto Rank that takes some treacherous twists and turns. Her writing is as wonderful as ever. For the Nin fan, this diary is yet another must-read.
Like the woman in Spike Lee's first movie, she assembles a life out what she likes in men, incompatible qualities that couldn't exist together in the same man. She holds it all together with skillful lies and each man's willingness to believe she is his, because it feels so good at the time. Her understanding of human nature is so clear that psychoanalysts accepted her as a college as well as a lover.
This volume seems even deeper and faster moving than the previous two. By this time she has found what makes women happy and how to explain it clearly, sometimes even with the words that Henry Miller taught her.
The parts of her diaries that the people involved could bear to hear were published in her lifetime, so these volumes consist mostly of erotic and emotional secrets.
