How often do you get the opportunity do you get to be a fly on the wall and observe from a safe distance the Bohemian art scene in the streets and behind the closed doors in Paris during the 30's? Well, that's how I felt reading this book. Guilty pleasure. It was an unglamorous look at a supposedly glamorous group.
Anais Nin's Diary is the best diary I have ever read. It is so detailed like capturing her thought patterns so intricately that one is amazed at her depth of character. She is quite honest in her relationships to June and Henry Miller. You are going to love it if you love reading personal accounts or diaries. This one takes it to another level.
