Publisher: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, New York
Publication Date: 1986
Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.
A Near Fine copy with a previous owner name on the flyleaf in a Fine, unclipped dust jacket. "Henry and June" is a portion of the writer's famous journal from October 1931 until October 1932—the year in which she met Henry and June Miller and fell for Henry's sensuality and June's mystery, a year of writing, lies, deceit, sexual awakening, introspection, psychoanalysis, and "love." Nin is an evocative, poetic writer who writes frequently of costumes, makeup, jewelry, nail polish and how one can put them on to create a new self. It quickly becomes clear that, despite the introspection of the journal, despite the psychoanalysis, despite her complete focus on herself and how she relates to those people in her life, Nin is no more self-aware by the end of the year than she was when she met Miller, Bookseller Inventory # 24279
