An essay about and in defense of the 1955 novel by Vladimir Nabokov.
A few new Anaïs Nin stories were unearthed and published. I review these somewhat unfinished and unpolished erotic works from one of my favorite authors.
In the preface of Delta of Venus, Nin explains how a “wealthy collector” hired her, Henry Miller, and various others to write erotica for $1 a page. I explore that idea and talk about the identity of that collector.
