A passionate eroticist, novel and short story writer, Anaïs was a writer before her time. Until the 1960’s, her work was, for the most part, dismissed as vulgar and exaggerated, and she was more infamous for her relationships with Henry and June Miller in the 1930’s. Her most famous works are her journals – spanning the years 1931 to 1974.
Anaïs Nin died on January 14, 1977.
Today, Anaïs is regarded as one of the leading women writers of the 20th-century. Her long journey of self-discovery documents both the fragility and power of female sexuality, and she has become an inspiration to female writers and women in general, globally.
