Anais Nin was a French-Cuban journalist, essayist, writer and author of stories and eroticism. Born in France to Cuban parents, Nin was the daughter of the composer Joaquin Nin and the classical singer Rosa Culmell. She spent the first years in Spain and Cuba, about sixteen years – in Paris (1924-1940), and the second half of her life – in the United States, where she became a famous writer.
From the age of eleven, Nin had been writing fruitful memoirs for sixty years until her death. Her diaries, some of which were published during her lifetime, describe her thoughts and personal relationships. Her diaries also describe her marriage to Hugh Parker Guiler and her marriage to Rupert Pole, as well as her numerous topics, including psychoanalyst Otto Rank and writer Henry Miller, which have had a strong impact on Nin and her work.
In addition to magazines, Nin has written many novels, critical studies, essays, short stories, stories and erotic collections. Many of her works, including erotic collections of Venus Delta and birds, have been published posthumously, with renewed critical interest in her life and work. Shortly afterwards, she spent her life in Los Angeles, California, where she died of cervical cancer in 1977.
