Al's Anaïs Nin Web Page

Anaïs Nin, 1903-1977

A web page by Alan Nicoll.

Many years ago I read a few of Anaïs's books, but never got very excited about any of it. Then, some time around 1/1/01, I got to reading vol. 1 of her Early Diaries, and did get very excited about it, hence this web page. Since then I've read vols. 1-3 of the early diaries, and one novel. I've tried twice to get through vol. 4, and failed, and so I haven't added to this page in a long while. I hope eventually to read ALL the diaries.

I apologize for the minimalist nature of this web page, but I have better things to do than add bells and whistles to something that will be seen by very few people.
