... as this is the second volume in all senses, not least as the lesser in terms of writing. Having said that it is still almost unique as an exploration of female sexuality encompassing the taboo and the almost perverse but in a way that is exhilerating rather than exploitative.

I've only given it three stars because it doesn't keep to the high standard of Delta of Venus which is intoxicating for both its breadth and its glittering, perfumed prose.

This reads like a second pick by the publishers in light of the success of the first book. Still an excellent, mind-expanding read, just not as good as the first...

Contained material of a disturbing sexual nature. I am all for erotica but not wickedness.

Delta of Venus is the better book in my opinion but, nonetheless, this is another excellent book.

Elegant, beautifully written, charmingly inventive soft porn. Mild by today's standards but classic Nin and all the more engaging for just that. Essential part of any Anais Nin collection.

Written as well as anything Anais Nin has ever written with all the insights into the human psyche successive generations have gained from her work.

Not as good as Delta of Venus.

You would be forgiven for thinking perhaps that one of the first published female writers of this genre would be a little tame, reserved, or timid. This collection of short stories is anything but tame, and for me personally, a little too much.
Good use of the english language though.

Delivery was bad - it took more than two weeks to reach destination, and delivery fee was expensive for such service - and when I open the envelope I discover a really bad quality paper cover (not plastified, literally plane hard paper printed in bad quality). Quite disappointed with this purchase.
