Anais nin has definitely made up to my “Favorite Classic Women” category.
I remember meeting her six months ago, as I read the introductory page of her book, the Delta of Venus published by Penguin classic, I instantly fall in love. ♥
Actually, I bought this book for a friend who swears by the Author. And I ended up having this one only for myself instead. Haha!
So let me talk about Delta of Venus and my first encounter with Anais Nin.
Anais Nin is an author famous for her erotic novels like Delta of Venus, Henry and June, Little Birds, and so on. I was first fascinated by her views about the world, feminism, and sex (well, I did a little research before reading the book), then I was lulled into her world because I like her imagination, her way with words, and how it resembles poetry though it’s a straight-face collection of short stories.
I was in love with her (no homo!) and I was in love with Delta of Venus and her flexibility in writing.
Over all, I do loved the book and the author, and I will definitely buy her other works. 🙂
