Review: The Diary of Ana´s Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934 (The Diary of Ana´s Nin #1)

User Review  - Goodreads

This is some of the best French "literature" I've ever read. The original French edition really does more justice to the meanings and passion of the texts. I am left with the impression that the word "diary" does not suffice for such beautiful, lucid writings. Read full review
