The Delta of Venus by Anais Nin (271 pgs) 2006 ed, originally published 1977
More erotica from Nin, consisting of a dozen or so loosely connected vignettes. The intro, setting her writing in its historical context, was interesting. In pre-WWII Paris, Nin and her struggling artist friends sold erotica to support themselves. This collection has a little bit of everything: orgies, lesbians, pedophilia, and incest as well as more straight-forward fare. Her frank handling of sexuality is stunning and Nin never fails at titilation.
