Anaïs Nin and the places of her childhood

family background - Europe 1903-1914 - America 1914-1924

If you want to learn more about the early life of Anais Nin I highly recommend the Early Diaries, they are beautifully written and truly reflect her own writing because - unlike later editions of her diaries - they are not edited or cut in any way. They show the sensibility of her as a young girl and then her awakening as a young woman. Beautiful writing!
