She was mentioned in the song 'Morning Song' by Jewel:

" We'll sit on the front porch, the sun can warm my feet
You can drink your coffee with sugar and cream
I'll drink my decaf herbal tea
Pretend we're perfect strangers and that we never met...
My how you remind me of a man I used to sleep with
that's a face I'd never forget
You can be Henry Miller and I'll be Anais Nin
Except this time it'll be even better,
We'll stay together in the end"

Wasn't she quite wack? Supposedly writing everything she did in order to discover the meaning in life?

one of my favourite quotes comes from anais nin...i find it fascinating..

Quote:
“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”

I need to read her journals..
Her life story intrigues me.. and some of the things she said about life and art are like revelations.

Anyway she was a very inspirational woman,to be that free with yourself and pushing it to another level still intrigues me.She had extremely beautiful face shape and just exuded grace all of which was not lost even when she was describing more graphic life expiriences.Thank you for this thread.

I just recently read about her for the first time. I was reading "Pleasures" by Eric Jerome Dickey and the main character has a fascination/admiration for Anais Nin.

I highlighted a quote from her in the book (which adorefaith also mentioned)
“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”
For some reason, this quote has stuck with me. I feel like it hits home in some strange way.

I'd love to read about her. What would you guys suggest for a beginner? I've never read any of her materials, what should I start with?
