I heard that anais nin had been paid for these stories.there are some interesting descriptions and sometimes it is exciting and I hate one story and it is disgusting.I wonder how anais nin imagined this story and who paid for.the story is about a man,pierre who has sex with a dead woman and while reading I felt sick in the stomach.
