inner sanctum

cover first edition, 1954
cover first edition, 1954


published fifty years ago, Anaïs Nin‘s novel

_A Spy In the House of Love_ chronicles

particular ethical dilemmas of the

human condition, from a female perspective.

drawn largely from her personal experiences,

Nin’s writing gave voice to subjects few

women dared to explore with such abandon.

her journals – the most recently published titled

_A Café in Space_ –  novels, and correspondence

have intrigued readers for over half a century;

she continues to fascinate, not only as a writer

of unique style and turn of phrase, but as a literary

character in her own right.
