Book review: Auletris by Anaïs Nin

Reading ebook Auletris by Anais Nin

I must admit I was a little nervous about reading this recently discovered collection of Anais Nin stories because sometimes stories are unpublished for a reason. So I was pleasantly surprised to discover that these stories are as captivating as those in Little Birds and Delta of Venus.

Nin explores even stranger territories, taking characters to the final frontier of desire. I can never tire of her eloquent and sensuous use of language, her understanding of deviant behaviour and lustful longing and how she can make voyeurism decent and perverted experiences pleasurable.

Congratulations to Paul Herron for unearthing these stories and for making sure that they see the light of day.
