The third volume of “one of the most remarkable diaries in the history of letters” (Los Angeles Times).
This candid volume from the renowned diarist covers her years of struggle, and eventual triumph, as an author in America during World War II.
“Transcending mere self-revelation . . . the diary examines human personality with a depth and understanding seldom surpassed since Proust . . . dream and fact are balanced and . . . in their joining lie the elements of masterpiece.” —The Washington Post
“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.” —Booklist
Edited and with a preface by Gunther Stuhlmann
