Henry and June: From

Henry and June: From "A Journal of Love" -The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin (1931-1932)

By:  Anaïs Nin

Also available in:
“Closer to what many sexually adventuresome women experience than almost anything I’ve ever read....I found it a very erotic book and profoundly liberating. —Alice Walker

Taken from the original, uncensored journals of Anaïs Nin, Henry and June spans a single year in Nin’s life when she discovers love and torment in one insatiable couple. From late 1931 to the end of 1932, Nin falls in love with Henry Miller’s writing and his wife June’s striking beauty. When June leaves Paris for New York, Henry and Anais begin a fiery affair that liberates her sexually and morally, but also undermines her marriage. As she grapples with her own conscience, a single question dominates her thoughts: What will happen when June returns to Paris?
