Born to Cuban parents in France, Anais Nin (1903-1977) was an American diarist, essayist, novelist, and writer of short stories and erotica. These stories range from lyrical love to high comedy and deal with such subjects as the exotic pleasures of Paris in the 1930s and a woman's awakening to her sexual nature

An extraordinarily rich and exotic collection from the mistress of erotic writing   In Delta of Venus , Anais Nin pens a lush, magical world where the characters of her imagination possess the most universal of desires and exceptional of talents. Among these provocative stories, a Hungarian adventurer seduces wealthy women then vanishes with their money; a veiled woman selects strangers from a chic restaurant for private trysts; and a Parisian hatmaker named Mathilde leaves her husband for the opium dens of Peru.
