“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” –Anais Nin
Anais Nin was a very remarkable writer of the 20th century, perhaps the most accomplished and remarkable female essayist of the 20th century. She wrote novels and short stories which depicted the
inner worlds of women in surrealistic and psychoanalytic fashion.
She was a prolific essayist, short story writer, novelist and one of the finest eroticist of her time.
Anais Nin wrote journals which span over 60 years and most of her work was published after her death sadly. Her best known work must be The Diaries of Anais Nin.
Anais Nin is that most important writer that still speaks to us today.
Her writings are just as timely today as they were so many years ago.
Anais Nin was born on Feb 21, 1903 and she died on Jan 14, 1977.
