Anaïs Nin Homepage


Introductory Note:
This homepage is dedicated to Anais Nin, one of my favourite writers and an amazing woman. The information provided here is intended to introduce people to Anais Nin the writer and Anais the person. I have relied on information from her diaries and various biographies, most of all on Deirdre Bair's biography. I do not own the copyright of the quoted texts, I only wish to create an appetite for more and hope that my quotes are not violating any copyright laws.
I provide links to to enable people to buy the books they are interested in right from their desks. I have often bought books at and can really recommend their service. By buying through the provided links you can help to support this website. Thank You!
I have scanned in various pictures from the photographic supplement to the diary of Anais Nin, the quality of the pictures may not always be wonderful but in order to reduce the size of the files I had to reduce the image quality considerably. Again I do not own the copyright for these pictures.
This is a private homepage which I maintain in my spare time. If you have any questions or suggestions please write to me but bear in mind that my time is limited and I may not answer you immediately. email me at
I hope you will enjoy the page!

  • If what Proust says is true, that happiness is the absence of fever, then I will never know happiness.
    For I am possessed by a fever for knowledge, experience, and creation. -Anais Nin
