Henry and June From The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin

And his wife June's striking beauty When June leaves Paris for New York Henry and Anaïs begin a fiery affair that liberates her sexually and morally but also undermines her marriage and eventually leads her into psychoanalysis As she grapples with Anais Nin has been an idol of mine for a long time There are few women of literary stature which I find relatable As a young reader I cherished Judy Bloom As an adult woman I was thrilled to read Anais Nin Intelligent witty and sexually provocative I admire her supreme linguistic talent Her writing in whtever form always maintains a powerful poetic lexicon She made love most fervently when she held the pen in her hand This excerpt from her personal journal is so very intimate flux with sexuality but you feel her grace and delicate vulnerability Something deeply personal left for us readersI also admire Nin because she was an uninhibited sexual being long before it was socially acceptable Is it even acceptable today Sensuality is a secret power in my body someday it will show healthy and ample Wait a while Her thoughts and feelings are confident as she expresses herself an empowering embodiment of feminism even by today s standards Her confidence becomes emboldened with lovers Nin is the epitome of unbridled lust for life

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 I can t remember the first time I read Nin s short stories I was probably technically a bit too young for that kind of stuff my mom left all her books laying around and did not really believe in hiding the R rated material but I also feel weirdly lucky I was exposed to her writing early because it clearly influenced my ideas about sex in what I believe to be a positive way Her emphasis on sensuality her honesty and frankness about the beautiful and complicated emotions that go with sex the diversity of her characters her female characters enjoyment of their bodies that kind of stuff is not usually what you are exposed to as a teenager which is a shame But importantly I learnt from Nin that sex is something you can write about shamelessly and beautifully that you can make literature out of dirty stories and that is a wonderful thing I ll always have a soft spot for her workBut Henry and June is not fiction its material lifted or less directly from Nin s very detailed diaries and documents the intense year of her life when she first met Henry Miller whose work I have never read and must now absolutely get to and his wife June Nin becomes fascinated with June at first but uickly develops feelings for Henry as well the whole situation turning uickly into a blend of obsession intense physical desire intellectual stimulation and search for personal identity The two writers throw themselves into a passionate affair while understanding perfectly that neither of them will leave their respective spouses The affair eventually ended but they remained in touch for the rest of their lives having left a long lasting influence on each otherNin was psychoanalyzed when the science was still relatively new and she was an insightful amateur analyst herself she kept a meticulous and deeply introspective record of her life spending a long time detailing her inner world and trying to understand it In this book she struggles with conflicting desires and ideas tries to make sense of it all with varying levels of successIn Ana s Nin I have found something of a kindred spirit a pervert and an iconoclast but also a feminist yes you read that right who felt very strong and deeply vulnerable at the same time and who had a really hard time reconciling those parts of herself That wonderful uote I with a deeper instinct choose a man who compels my strength who makes enormous demands on me who does not doubt my courage or my toughness who does not believe me naive or innocent who has the courage to treat me like a woman perfectly captures how I felt in my search for a partner I read that sentence and I wanted to scream This This is what I looked for my whole life and eventually found in my husband It felt like such a huge contradiction to be happy to submit to someone and still be assertive and living on my own terms Ana s clearly struggled with that conundrum though I understand she never truly resolved itNo she is not perfect not always likable or even moral the idea of all that lying and cheating actually grosses me out I wouldn t want to hang out with someone that selfish and fickle But it is a complete mistake and egregious simplification to reduce this book to simple erotica or dismiss it because its author is not a very nice person because there is a lot going on there than smut The honest attempt at untangling her feelings reactions and at understanding herself are fascinating the prose is absolutely stunning and to be honest it makes me feel dreamy to read about people who had such strong bonds intellectually and physically Most people forget that the brain is where most of the arousal happens after allIt was also interesting to find what is clearly the seed of some of her short stories in the anecdotes she wrote in this journal Anyone familiar with the Little Birds collection will find a few sentences a few events that very obviously inspired Nin s fiction later down the road5 stars for pure reading pleasure and for the entrancing journey in the mind of a very uniue writerI use the word pervert here for lack of a better one I can t find a word that means someone who shamelessly enjoys sex and refuses to be judged as a human being based on that aspect of themselves and doesn t mean deviant or into alternative sex whatever the fuck that means

    Henry and June is the type of journal that makes me want to highlight passage after passagesince journals so often have the types of personal reflections that are hard to achieve in pure fiction I did get bored with it fast though Maybe because after the first few instances of lust jealousy psychoanalysis and then lust jealousy and psychoanalysis it was pretty much the same events and observations repeating themselves in different forms But

    Is Anais Nin a good writer Ought we take her seriously Apparently some do but the description on the back of the Penguin edition about sums up this book culled from the unexpurgated diaries of Ms Nin during the period in which writer Henry Miller and his wife June Masefield figure large on her horizon it is a compelling account of a woman's sexual and emotional awakening If you don't groan at that charmless phr

    While reading this I was thinking that Anais is a narcissistic bitch which I don't really necessarily hold against her I'm sure it makes reading her journals interesting than it would be otherwise On one hand she comes of
