Henry and June: From Henry and June: From "A Journal of Love" - The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin by Anaïs Nin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved it, plain and simple. I gained insight into minds like Ms.Nin's. I learned a lot about how I felt through her. She had such titillating descriptions of her fiery states. She spoke of dipping fingers in her woman's honey and drinking men's white blood. At one point I wondered if all her dealings with Henry were her fantasies. The last 60 pages kind of dragged for me, but the last 10 were riveting. I recommend this book to anyone that wants a little insight into the libido of a lascivious woman.
