In this “erotically charged”(Publishers Weekly) diary that picks up where Incest left off, Nin chronicles a restless search for fulfillment that leads her to New York City-”that brilliant giant toy” -then back to Paris and Henry, and eventually into the arms of a passionate new lover.

About the Author:

Ana-s Nin (1903-1977) was born in Paris and aspired at an early age to be a writer. An influential artist and thinker, she was the author of several novels, short stories, critical studies, a collection of essays, two volumes of erotica, and nine published volumes of her Diary.

From Booklist:

Less shocking than Incest (1992), the third volume of Nin's provocative and provoking uncensored diaries finds our madly scribbling femme fatale in New York, where she's gone to get away from her doggedly loyal husband and from adored lover Henry Miller and indulge her fancy for analyst Otto Rank. Once again, Nin is blithely honest about her profound dishonesty, admitting that she loves telling "marvelous lies" to the men who desire her. She tires of Rank just as Miller and her husband catch up with her, then, suddenly, enters a whole new realm of potent romance with a fiery man of Inca descent, Gonzalo More. More, a man of conscience and lyrical intensity, inspires Nin to new poetic and mystical heights. These unexpurgated volumes are of particular interest to readers of the original published versions because they fill in so many puzzling omissions, but they are also remarkable for their audacity and prolificity. Just one page of Nin's extraordinary diaries contains more sex, melodrama, fantasies, confessions, and observations than most novels, and reflects much about the human psyche we strive to repress.

Book Description Cengage Learning, Inc, United States, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In the diary that she would call Fire, Nin sails to New York City and, having temporarily fled her static marriage to Hugh Guiler and her love affair with Henry Miller, indulges her infatuation with analyst Otto Rank. Her interest in the study of psychology grows, but in time she tires of Rank. - I want to be a world all to myself.I feel like playing all the roles - and she returns to Paris, Hugh, and Henry.Settling into a great serenity, a psychological moon life, she is haunted by a rising dissatisfaction, which inspires her to seek out a new source of fulfillment. I m awaiting a lover. I m restless, she writes. Things are calling me away. The cure for her disenchantment is the Peruvian Gonzalo More, who takes control, woos her in Spanish ( the language of my blood ), and stirs her to new heights. Life. Fire. Being myself on fire I set others on fire. Drawn from Nin s original, uncensored journals, Fire continues the story of one woman s quest to discover and liberate herself sexually, artistically, and emotionally. She also continues passionately the one affair that would last the rest of her life: The diary is my world, my ego. I will no longer be ashamed of it. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780156003902
